Too detailed video surveillance
A company based in Luxembourg has installed surveillance cameras both outside and inside on its company premises. However, in the eyes of the Luxembourg data protection authority, the cameras were too detailed in several aspects. For example, one of the outdoor cameras captures parts of a neighboring public road. The cameras inside the building were permanently focused on the workplaces of employees. As a result of these facts, the data protection authority was a violation of the principle of data minimization, as the permanent monitoring of employees and public roads were not necessary. In addition, the company violated its obligation to provide information by improperly informing its employees.
