Evercams GDPR Commitment

At Evercam, we are committed to safeguarding the privacy and data protection rights of individuals, including those within the European Union (EU). The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) represents a significant advancement in data protection laws, and Evercam is dedicated to ensuring that our products and services are fully compliant with GDPR requirements.

Understanding data privacy requires familiarity with certain terms:

Data Subject: An individual whose personal data has been collected.
Data Processing: The operations performed on personal data, whether automated or manual.
Data Controller: The entity that determines the purposes and means of processing personal data.
Data Processor: The entity that processes personal data on behalf of the Data Controller.

In simple terms, Evercam is the Data Processor and our Clients are the Data Controllers

Compliance in Practice

As a Data Processor, Evercam diligently adheres to the key principles of the GDPR in the following ways:

  1. Lawfulness, Fairness, and Transparency: A clear signage is placed on site to inform about the video capturing system in place.
  2. Purpose Limitation: Data is captured for legitimate interests such as Health & Safety and Project Management/Fraud Detection.
  3. Data Minimisation: Field of view is focused on capturing the construction progress. Privacy Shields are applied to areas not related to construction activities. 
  4. Storage Limitation: We store footage for typically 3 years due to construction liability periods. However, we follow our clients instructions on retention periods. 
  5. Integrity and Confidentiality: Access rights are restricted. Evercam acts only on written instructions.
  6. Accountability: We keep records of what data we have and where it is stored.
