Video Surveillance Privacy Information

As you have been informed by the signs outside one of our buildings or on our premises, the area used by you may be under video surveillance. The following is to provide you with additional information and explanations on such video surveillance.

1. Controller: The video surveillance system is operated by the company indicated on the information sign. The company’s contact details are:

Immergut GmbH & Co. KG, Schlüchtern plant, Bahnhofstraße 22, D-36381 Schlüchtern, phone: +49 6661 / 155-0, e-mail

2. Data protection officer: Immergut GmbH & Co. KG has appointed an external data protection officer. You can contact the data protection officer of Immergut GmbH & Co. KG via Immergut GmbH & Co. KG, Datenschutz, Bahnhofstraße 22, 36381 Schlüchtern, Germany, phone: +49 6661 / 155-0, e-mail:

3. Processing purposes: our video surveillance systems exclusive serve to reduce or prevent and investigate crimes and other serious breaches of duty, to enforce domiciliary rights, to protect the controller’s legal interests, especially tangible and intellectual property, to protect the legal interests of the employees, other personnel and third parties, to ensure insurance cover and fire protection and, if applicable, to assert damages claims under civil law. Any use for other purposes is excluded.

4. Legal basis: the legal basis of processing in publicly accessible areas is Section 4 of the BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act) 2018, point (f) of Art. 6 of the GDPR. In addition, processing regarding employees is based on Section 26 (1) of the BDSG, point (f) of Art. 6 of the GDPR, each in conjunction with the relevant works agreements, which can be consulted in the responsible works council’s office. In all cases, the controller’s legitimate interest in processing is a consequence of the aforementioned processing purposes overriding the minimal impairment associated with the processing and short-time retention for the data subject. For this reason as well, any data protection impact assessment is not appropriate.

5. Retention period: on average, we retain the video data for 19 days, usually for no longer than 25 days. This depends on the number of movements in the coverage area. The data will be retained or evaluated for a longer period, however, if this is necessary to achieve the aforementioned purposes, especially for the preservation of evidence. Data retained for a longer period will be erased once the backup purpose no longer exists.

6. Data subject rights: to ensure fair and transparent processing, we advise you pursuant to Art. 13(2) of the GDPR that your data subject rights are as follows: (i) right to request from the controller access to the relevant personal data; (ii) right to rectification or erasure or restriction of processing; (iii) right to object to processing, unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; (iv) right to data portability; (v) right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. If you want to view, confirm, correct, rectify, update, supplement, anonymise, block, restrict or erase your personal data, object to our use of your personal data, have questions on the processing of your personal data or want us to forward your personal data to any other person or company, please contact the external data protection officer. If you want to exercise your right to lodge a complaint, please refer to the data protection supervisory authority in charge.
