2. What data we treat as personal data
The HagerGroup considers any data that identifies you or can be used to identify you as personal data (GDPR Art. 4 (1)). Therefore we will treat any such information with the security measures and practices outlined in this privacy statement.

Therefore the footage from our video surveillance cameras may contain personal data about you and we process it incompliance with the GDPR and applicable local data protection law. 

3. Personal data we collect
Our video cameras mainly capture the image of staircases, hallways and the trucker break area. However we marked all areas covered by CCTV with a sign. If you enter any of these marked areas, images of you will be captured. By entering our premises note that images of you will be recorded.

4. The Use of your personal data by the Hager Group
We installed video surveillance as a security measure to ensure the safety of our staff, visitors and facility. Furthermore the video surveillance is used to detect and investigate illegal activities. The locations of our cameras are based on past incidents in our facility and are the most moderate way to ensure safety.

a. Entity Responsible for the Processing of your personal data
The subsidiary of the HagerGroup responsible for the site is the controller of your data. Security providers may work as a processor for us. Please note that only the site management has access to the video surveillance after its recording. The live feed mav be available to security providers.

b. The legal basis for processing
We conduct video surveillance at our sites on the basis of legitimate interest (GDPR Art. 6 (1) (1) (f). The security of our staff and visitors, the facility and goods at the site is improved by this measure. The CCTV footage may also be used in the investigation of illegal activities. Consequently, to protect our employees we do not target workstations in the broad sense.

c. Transfers of your data
The video surveillance is only transferred from the camera to its storage space at the Hager Group Servers.

d. Retention of your data
We delete all surveillance footage after one month (GDPR Art. 5 (1) (e)) , unless it is used in a legal process or retention periods are otherwise defined by local data protection law.

5. Protection of your data
The data is only stored at the Hager Servers. Only the site management and the local security/safety team has access, unless the data is needed for investigating illegal activities. To ensure that your data is safe we only provide a live feed to our security team. The Hager Servers are secured by technical and organizational measures.

6. Minors
Minors are not supposed to enter into Hager Group sites in the course of our normal business. However any minor who enters such video surveilled facility will also be on our surveillance footage..
