Visitors to our Studio
Please be aware that CCTV is used in the premises of VIDA Studios. Our CCTV policy can be found below.
CCTV Policy (Code of Practice)
VIDA Studios uses closed circuit television (CCTV) and the images produced to prevent or detect crime and to prevent loss or damage to the premises.
The system comprises a number of cameras.
The system does have sound recording capability.
The CCTV system is owned and operated by Jenny Thomson in her capacity as owner of VIDA Studios.
Access to the CCTV images is password protected.
The CCTV Scheme is registered with the ICO under the terms of the GDPR.
All authorised operators with access to images are aware of the procedures that need to be followed when accessing the recorded images. Through this policy, all operators are made aware of their responsibilities in following the CCTV Code of Practice.
Statement of Intent
Jenny Thomson t/a VIDA Studios complies with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) CCTV Code of Practice to ensure that CCTV is used responsibly and safeguards both trust and confidence in its continued use. The Code of Practice is published at:
CCTV warning signs are clearly and prominently placed at the entrance to VIDA Studios.
The original planning, design and installation of CCTV equipment endeavoured to ensure that the scheme will deliver maximum effectiveness and efficiency but it is not possible to guarantee that the system will cover or detect every single incident taking place in the areas of coverage.
Siting the Cameras
Cameras are sited so that they only capture images relevant to the purposes for which they are installed (described above) and care will be taken to ensure that reasonable privacy expectations are not violated.
Storage and Retention of CCTV images
Recorded data will not be retained for longer than is necessary. While retained, the integrity of the recordings will be maintained to ensure their evidential value and to protect the rights of the people whose images have been recorded.
All retained data will be stored securely at all times and permanently deleted as appropriate / required.
Access to CCTV images
Access to recorded images will be restricted to those people authorised to view them and will not be made more widely available.
Subject Access Requests (SAR)
Individuals have the right to request access to CCTV footage relating to themselves under the Data Protection Act/GDPR.
All requests should be made in writing to the owner of VIDA Studios. Individuals submitting requests for access will be asked to provide sufficient information to enable the footage relating to them to be identified. For example, date, time and location.
VIDA Studios will respond to requests within 40 calendar days of receiving the written request. This is as per the ICO CCTV Code of Practice.
The school reserves the right to refuse access to CCTV footage where this would prejudice the legal rights of other individuals or jeopardise an on-going investigation.
Access to and Disclosure of Images to Third Parties
There will be no disclosure of recorded data to third parties other than to authorised personnel such as the Police and service providers where these would reasonably need access to the data (e.g. investigators).
Requests for images / data should be made in writing to the owner of VIDA Studios.
Complaints and enquiries about the operation of CCTV within the studio should be directed to the owner of VIDA Studios in the first instance.
