CCTV footage can constitute 'processing of personal data' under the Data Protection Act 1988. If somebody appears on CCTV they become, effectively, a 'data subject' and thus entitled to the protections offered by the DPA.User;42317][quote=Sh4rkyBloke said:Just an honest question - how can one view the CCTV under the guise of 'Data Protection'?
Doesn't seem to be logical to me, but then the law rarely does.
A data subject has the right of access to any data held about him/her (with limited exceptions) - this includes being able to see any CCTV footage in which they may appear.
So there you go, you learn something new every day. Thanks for that.
