If yes, this is considered to be processing of personal data of people present on your premises. Such personal data processing is subject to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Slovak data protection legislation and the Guidelines on Processing of Personal Data Through Video Devices adopted by the European Data Protection Board (EDPB) in January 2020. In addition, video systems are frequently subject to inspection by the Office for Personal Data Protection of the Slovak Republic.
Offenses related to personal data protection are subject to sanctions of up to EUR 20 mil. or up to 4% of total annual turnover of the preceding financial year, whichever is higher. Since the effective date of the GDPR (25 May 2018), 51 of 98 inspections have been completed in Slovakia. More than a third of the completed inspections focused on inspecting personal data protection when video camera monitoring was in place.
