DATA PROTECTION


Your attention is drawn to compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA18) in respect of use of your VSS system.

The Act applies to all types of VSS systems and is enforceable where a VSS system obtains, records, or stores personal data in the form of video images.

From 25 May 2018, the Data Protection (Charges and Information) Regulations 2018 requires every organisation or sole trader who processes personal information to pay a data protection fee to the ICO, unless they are exempt.


Your VSS system may need to be registered by notifying the Information Commissioner at https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/data-protection-fee/
or telephone 0303 123 1113.


The notification period is for one year which should be renewed annually.

The cost of your data protection fee depends on your size and turnover. There are three tiers of fee ranging from £40 and £2,900, but for most organisations it will be £40 or £60. The payment is always + VAT.


NB: From 25 May 2018, people who use VSS for domestic purposes, i.e.: to monitor their property, even if it films beyond the boundaries of their property will be exempt from paying a fee under data protection law.


For more information on the use of VSS on domestic property, see the following website address.

Warning signs must be displayed to show that VSS cameras are recording, stating the purpose of the system, and including details of who manages the system and contact details. These will be provided & installed within the quotation price.

For more information, contact the information commissioner at https://ico.org.uk/

or telephone 0303 123 1113.
