The European Data Protection Board is asking for comments on its recently adopted guidelines for processing personal data using video devices. The guidelines clarify many questions involving video surveillance, including that organizations using surveillance must explicitly notify subjects that they are doing so while also providing a detailed purpose for the technology's use. The legal use of surveillance is also spelled out as the most common purposes are legitimate interest and necessary "in the public interest." The guidelines also say that legal challenges of surveillance based on subjects' consent will be permissible only in exceptional cases. The EDPB's period for comment on the guidelines closes Sept. 9.
