European Data Protection Board (EDPB) Guidelines on Video Surveillance
On July 10, the EDPB adopted Guidelines on Video Surveillance, which clarify how the GDPR applies to the processing of personal data when using video devices and aim to ensure the consistent application of the GDPR in this regard. The guidelines cover both traditional video devices and smart video devices.
For the latter, the guidelines focus on the rules regarding processing of special categories of data.
In addition, the guidelines cover, among others, the lawfulness of processing, the applicability of the household exemption and the disclosure of footage to third parties.
The guidelines will be subject to public consultation.
