The Dutch Data Protection Authority (CBP) has found electronics retailer Media Markt broke privacy laws by using “mystery shoppers equipped with hidden cameras to film shop staff,” Dutch News reports. The CPB has said companies may only film staff with secret cameras under specific conditions, such as instances of widespread theft. Media Markt used the results of the surveillance, along with images from security cameras, in personnel evaluations, the report states. Media Markt has apologised, and the CBP has not yet decided whether it will fine the company.
