This privacy notice explains the kind of personal data ALKALOID AD Skopje (hereinunder: Controller) collects on you when visiting the official/business premises and how the Controller uses this data.
Why do we collect/process personal data?
The Controller collects data through the video surveillance system for the following reasons/purposes:
To control access to the premises (building, entrance, facilities) and to ensure the security of the premises, the safety of Controller's staff and visitors, as well as property and information located or stored on the premises;
To prevent, deter, and if necessary, investigate unauthorised physical access, including unauthorised access to secure and protected facilities, IT infrastructure, or operational information; and
To prevent, detect and investigate destruction and theft of equipment, assets, and products owned by the Controller, visitors, or staff, or threats to the safety of personnel working at the premises (e.g., injury at work, fire, physical assault).
The video surveillance system is not used for any other purpose, such as to monitor the work of employees or their attendance. The positioning of the video cameras is such that they do not cover the surrounding public space. The cameras are aimed to give a general overview of what is happening in certain places but not to recognize persons.
The system is also not used as an investigative tool or to obtain evidence in internal investigations or disciplinary procedures unless a security incident is involved, which the video surveillance is installed for, under the Law on Data Protection. (In exceptional circumstances, we may transfer the data to investigatory bodies in the framework of a formal disciplinary or criminal investigation).
The video surveillance cameras are installed at all sites/premises owned by the Controller and are placed and so focused that they film only people who access the official/business premises/facilities, including property.
The video surveillance system covers the following area:
Perimeter fence around the Company’s site (property)
Entrances at the perimeter fence,
Secured entrances to sites,
Entrances to premises,
Internal parking lots,
Facilities in premises for production or storage of specific products, including narcotic products,
Facilities in premises where information technology, telecommunications, or other power equipment is installed,
Facilities in premises for archiving/storage of documents,
Facilities in premises for storage of particularly valuable spare parts and equipment,
What kind of data does the Controller collect?
The Controller collects just images caught on camera and does not record voice.
Who is responsible for the data processing?
The Controller is an entity that processes personal data and determines the objectives of this processing operation, solely in compliance with the Law on Personal Data Protection. Moreover, the Head of General Services Kjire Kocev is the contact person and responsible person for this operation.
What is the legal basis for this processing of personal data through the video surveillance system?
The Controller uses video-surveillance equipment for (list one or more of the listed purposes):
Protection of the life and health of people;
Protection of property;
Protection of the life and health of employees due to the nature of operation; or
Entry and exit control to/from official or business premises.
Therefore, the processing is lawful under Article 90 of the Law on Personal Data Protection.
In addition, at the entrance of ALKALOID AD Skopje, there is a visible and clearly posted notice about the video surveillance that allows data subjects to learn about the video surveillance, the name of the Controller performing video surveillance, and how they can obtain information about where and for how long the recordings of the video surveillance system are stored.
Who can see my personal data?
Only a person authorised for video surveillance can access the recordings (such as Controller’s employees in the security and IT&T departments). Access to the digital device or hard disc recorder is limited and protected by technical data security measures (a password and recording of any log or action from the staff members or authorised persons).
