Re: CCTV coverage, where is the line drawn?
@ Natasha Live:
"ICO has only has power when businesses are involved and not private citizens."
From the link so helpfully provided earlier: "The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) regulates and enforces the Data Protection Act (DPA) ... if your CCTV covers any areas beyond the boundaries of your property it will no longer be regarded as domestic processing and be exempt from the DPA."
"Also it is fine to record public areas such as the Queen's highways. This is how Google gets to drive their cars around and News gets to show busy streets, etc."
Haven't you noticed that Google Street View images don't move, have no time and date attached, and also have all personal information blurred out?
And what happens when someone enters the area where the professional recording system of which you boast has already started operating, so that they don't hear the announcement?
I think you need to do some more research before you find yourself in hot water, starting with the realisation that however pricey is your law firm in Leeds, the information they give is unlikely to trump that presented on a government website.
