CCTV Subject Access Request / 30 Day notice / 30 day retention

Recommended Posts

I've tried to get access to footage of myself from a private company's CCTV camera using their subject access request email form. I got no response from them (not even an acknowledgement) so a week later I've chased them by phone.


The company have informed me that:

They only hold the footage for 30 days.

My request was made on the 25th day.

They say their contractor that deals with the CCTV system needs 2-3 weeks lead-time to reclaim the footage.

Therefore there's no point in them even processing my request because the footage will be deleted by the time they come to retrieve it.


I feel like I'm being fobbed off. I'd just like to check that they are allowed to do this and I'm not missing anything?

I think you need to give us much more detail about the story here. It's impossible to advise you on the extremely scant facts that you have provided
