Information About the Processing of Personal Data by SIA Scandbio Latvia Within the Framework of the Video Surveillance System

Controller: SIA Scandbio Latvia, Reg. No. 40003356780, Griki, Laucienas pagasts, Talsu novads, LV-3285, www.scandbio.lv

Data protection specialist: sandris.ivanovskis@scandbio.com

Purpose (aim) of processing:

Continuous video surveillance of the Controller's office, factory premises and territory, and production processes, for the purpose of ensuring a safe working environment, continuity of production, and protection of its business secrets, and for the safeguarding of the employer's and employees’ legitimate interests.

Grounds for processing: Article 6 (1) (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation.

Grounds and balance of interests: The Controller is obliged to ensure a safe working environment for its employees, and in the event of an accident, to investigate it and take measures in order to prevent its recurrence. The Controller is obliged to ensure that its products are handed over to the client or carrier that enters the Controller's territory, as well as the safety of this service. The Controller is entitled to inviolability of its property, and to the protection of its interests through the procedures laid down by law. Invasion of a data subject's rights and freedoms is reduced because the Controller stores the video recording for a maximum period of 3 weeks (21 days). After that, the video recording is irretrievably deleted. Video surveillance of the Controller's territory is done in order to ensure constant (24/7) observation of the entrance to the Company's office, factory and warehouse premises, and the processes therein, to monitor the movement of machinery and vehicles, and in the event of a violation, to detect obstructive actions or circumstances that may cause a break in the work process and health & safety regulations, or other violations, and to promptly take measures to eliminate the harmful consequences thereof.

Large loads of products and special machinery are located on the Controller's territory. The damage or loss thereof poses an unacceptable risk to the quality of the goods produced by the Controller. The Controller cannot ensure the constant presence of multiple supervisors or security guards. Thus, video surveillance of the offices, production premises, and territory allows it to prevent risks, and observe the territory in a discreet manner without bothering employees and other visitors of the territory, in a way that does not require unreasonable effort.

Data recipients: Data is only used by the Controller's employees for the purpose of carrying out their job duties. Data is transferred outside of the Controller only to law enforcement agencies, upon their request, or upon the Controller's petition regarding an offence and a request to investigate it. Data is not transferred outside of Latvia.

Length of data storage: Data is stored for up to 3 weeks (21 days).

Type of data processing: Data is recorded electronically, via cameras. The video surveillance system ensures automatic recognition of people's faces and/or the number plates of vehicles. Searches for people or incidents may only be conducted visually, by inspecting the material at the time and place in question.

Objections to processing: Any and all objections and complaints regarding processing should be submitted in writing to the Company or the supervisory body (State Data Inspectorate, www.dvi.gov.lv).
