Why do we have video surveillance?

All individuals who are in a recording area may have their personal data processed by Stena. These individuals could be customers, suppliers, visitors, employees, contractors, consultants, surveillance personnel, security personnel or unauthorized persons.



Monitoring and recording of video in the company's territory

The purpose is mainly to maintain a safe environment for staff and visitors in real time, and to prevent criminal activity such as theft and damage. The video surveillance provides support in the company's preventive work against serious incidents that pose threats to persons or property and in investigation of crimes such as damage or theft. The surveillance also fulfils the function of preventing unauthorized visits in the properties as well as visual support for Stena's external alarm center. In addition, production environments are monitored to secure and streamline processes, for example to avoid downtime and accidents.

Stena's operations are also subject to a number of requirements from authorities, where in some cases there are demands from external part for video surveillance.

The video surveillance is mainly done with balancing of interest as legal basis. For security reasons, video surveillance is normally considered a legitimate interest according to regulatory guidance and praxis.

As part of a police report or ongoing police investigation, specific recordings may be secured as evidence and forwarded relevant police authorities or courts.
