Rotterdam School of Management B.V. (hereinafter RSM B.V.) uses cameras and thus closed-circuit television (CCTV) as part of its policy to promote safety and protect personal and school property within the Bayle building. By applying CCTV, RSM B.V. processes personal data since it captures imagery of people in the building. Therefore, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to the usage of cameras. This policy provides the framework within which CCTV capturing takes place within RSM B.V., to ensure integrity, judiciousness, and effectiveness in the application of this policy.

This policy applies to all RSM B.V. personnel in the use of authorized security cameras and their video monitoring and recording systems. Security cameras may be installed in situations and placed where the security of either people or property would be enhanced. Cameras will be limited to uses that do not violate the reasonable expectation of privacy. When appropriate, the cameras may be placed inside and outside the Bayle building. Within RSM B.V., in principle no covert cameras will be used, unless there is a legitimate interest to do so and there are no other measures that may help to solve the issue.

Within this policy, the following terms are capitalized. The following definitions apply:
