Our company does not employ any personal data for general dissemination.
Video surveillance in particular:
As clearly stated on notices posted within the buildings of the thermal baths and in the respective car parks, Terme Merano S.p.A. (data controller for this data) has installed video surveillance systems (CCTV cameras) in these areas to ensure the safety of people and property from the company and of third parties and to protect them against acts of vandalism and/or unlawful and fraudulent behaviour. The images recorded on these systems will be processed using electronic equipment and in compliance with prevailing laws in order to ensure the security and confidentiality of the data and images recorded. In particular, the CCTV cameras are connected to servers and suitable physical media which will be used to store the images and which can only be accessed by data processors and supervisors involved in processing the data. In view of significant security requirements and requests from the judicial authorities following the occurrence of acts of vandalism and unlawful behaviour, the images are kept for a maximum of five days (thermal baths area and the car parks) except for those filmed at the weekends or during holidays or office closures. The images will be deleted automatically after this period, unless requested otherwise by the judicial police. We also hereby inform you that the content of any recordings made:
a) may be viewed exclusively by data processors, subject to authorisation from the data controller or supervisor, provided that this is necessary for the intended purposes or in connection with the completion of investigations by judicial authorities or the judicial police or for systems maintenance;
b) may be passed on exclusively to the judicial authorities or the judicial police if so requested or if unlawful events occur which require investigation. We also hereby inform you that, as stipulated by the General Measure on Video Surveillance of 29 April 2004, your consent is not required for the cases and purposes described above.
