Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 months ago.

Is there any reason you think they shouldn't put this on social media?
What were the circumstances?
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
That made me depressed and when my wife saw see cried a lot. That was quite dangerous
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 months ago.
Thanks.
I'm afraid that is not a ground to prevent them posting this.
Ultimately the CCTV is theirs and the starting point is that they are free to do as they wish with it.
There are DPA restrictions if they are employers but that would only govern the way in which it is stored and kept. It doesn't prevent them using it per se.
I'm afraid unless they have taken an unlawful action they cannot be responsible for the fact that it affected you badly.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Jo
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
Is it right to disclose in social media without asking me?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 months ago.
If the CCTV belongs to them then they can.
If you are an employee then it depends what your contract says but it is quite unlikely that it prevents them using their CCTV.
Customer: replied 12 months ago.
I didn't get my answer
Thanks
