GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and CCTV

CCTV used on your domestic property will be exempt from the Data Protection Act unless you are capturing footage of individuals outside your property.


If your cameras can view individuals on public land or land owned by others you will need to install signage to inform as such, and register your system with the ICO (Information commissioner’s office).
