INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect personal information from and about you as follows:
HOW WE USE INFORMATION
CCTV (CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION) DATA
Applied collects data through the CCTV system for various reasons: (i) to control access to the buildings and to ensure the security of the buildings, the safety of Applied’s staff and visitors, as well as property and information located or stored on the premises; (ii) to prevent, deter, and if necessary, investigate unauthorized physical access, including unauthorized access to secure premises and protected rooms, IT infrastructure, or operational information; (iii) to prevent, detect and investigate a theft of equipment or assets owned by Applied, visitors or staff or threats to the safety of personnel working at the office (e.g. fire, physical assault). Legal basis for the processing is the legitimate interest of Applied as controller.
The CCTV system is not used for any other purpose, such as to monitor the work of employees or their attendance. It is important to notice that the location and positioning of the video-cameras are such that they are not intended to cover the surrounding public space; the cameras are aimed to give a general overview of events taking place in certain places but not to recognize persons. The system is also not used as an investigative tool or to obtain evidence in internal investigations or disciplinary procedures unless a security incident is involved. (In exceptional circumstances, the data may be transferred to investigatory bodies in the framework of a formal disciplinary or criminal investigation). The CCTV cameras are installed at the entrances, placed and focused in a way that only people who want to access the site or the annexed facilities including parking areas property are filmed. The CCTV system covers the area of entry and exit points of the building, entry points inside the building, delivery, garage, and outer area of the building. The system only captured images; no voice is recorded. The images are not shared with third parties and can only be accessed by a limited number of people in the local Security Office. They are periodically overwritten and deleted immediately once its purposes are fulfilled.
