They say it is to prevent vandalism. Some time ago somebody drawn a penis on the doors and they have decided to put 3 cameras in a toilet that is not even really big, 1 camera is even pointed to urinals which are not covered or separated by anything. I feel that it invades my privacy and 3 cameras would be more than excesive use for such a small space. Another thing is that I do not think it is justified to put them there as they shouldn't be use for prevention of minor things like single vandalism instances that should be dealt internaly. Am I right?
Well it happened once and no real damaged was inflicted like I said. My question was: can I take them to court, do I have the case against them if they cannot justify use of CCTV there which I am quite sure they cannot.
Basicly I have found on ICO website that: Cameras and listening devices should not be installed in private areas such as toilets and private offices, except in the most exceptional circumstances where serious crime is suspected. This should only happen where there is an intention to involve the police, not where it is a purely internal disciplinary matter.
You wrote that no damage was caused to me, what about stress and privacy invasion?
Ok. Thank You :)
