Re: What if I object?

Worth adding (cos lot's of people miss this), CCTV type recordings are also largely exempt from subject matter requests.

^^ Not entirely true, we will supply them if people can give a reasonable timeframe e.g. 10am - 10:30am and if there are others we'll redact (blur out) their faces.

It partly depends on WHY you need it but if you need it to prove you were somewhere and the police ask for it then they'll get it, if YOU need it (subject access) then you'd still get it but we'd be looking for a damn good reason to spend our time editing the footage. Only the police will get it under section 29 if they can also provide a good reason/time frame and description of the person(s) they are interested in. Otherwise we tell them to sod off.
