CCTV

Please note that there are CCTV cameras installed around the outside of the Property for security purposes. We have identified and documented the potential impact on the privacy of Guests and taken this into account when installing and operating our CCTV system. We regularly review whether CCTV is still the best security solution. We confirm that the CCTV cameras are not installed in the interior of the Property.

We have paid the data protection fee to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and nominated an individual who is responsible for the operation of the CCTV system. We have established a process to recognise and respond to Guests making requests for copies of the images on our CCTV footage and to seek prompt advice from the Information Commissioner where there is uncertainty.

We only retain recorded CCTV images for long enough to allow for any incident to come to light (eg. for a theft to be noticed) and to investigate it. We securely store CCTV images and limit access to authorised individuals.
