I'm more than aware of the requirements of data protection. We're not talking about that. Sure, anybody is within their rights (if they can prove you still have it) to legally request a copy of any personal data/images of them that you may possess, but that in no way stops you obtaining it. Data protection laws stipulate the period of retention, and that the data has to be relevant, but again, there's nothing in law that says you can't film or collate data in the public sphere. So yes, actually, it is as straightforward as cam on and away you go (if you were that way inclined - which I'm not personally).But if you are storing my personal image, you are storing my personal info, as my image is classed as personal data which under gdpr principles means I have a right of access to that data. It's not as straightforward as whack a cam on and off you fly.
I work for a local authority. Anyone, whose image we capture on cctv has a right to access those images, this is images captured in a public place.
Whilst a civil matter, if a player wanted access to the images of them you had captured and stored, they would have a right of access under gdpr legislation.
