Privacy Policy for Body Cameras

Aimo’s parking attendants are often subjected to violence or the threat of violence. As such some of Aimo’s parking attendants are equipped with body cameras. Aimo has conducted a risk assessment in relation to its use of body cameras.

Where do parking attendants wear body cameras?

Body cameras may be in use on public streets in the following areas:

• Arvika
• Karlskrona
• Växjö
• Kristianstad

A sticker affixed to the parking attendant’s service vehicle will indicate that body cameras are in use within the area being patrolled. Recordings are not always occurring within these areas – only when they are being patrolled by parking attendants.


The nature, extent, context and purpose of the processing

Aimo Park Sweden AB, Org. No. 556553-5548 (“Aimo”) is the personal data controller for the processing of personal data collected through the body cameras worn by parking attendants.

Aimo’s parking attendants are regularly subjected to threats and violence in the performance of their duties. Their duties include the surveillance and monitoring of vehicles and the issuance of parking fines and parking notices.

To reduce violence, Aimo has equipped selected attendants with body cameras. Aimo has carefully considered this activity in relation to the rights of data subjects, in particular those who may be filmed, and has determined, on the basis of staff incident reporting statistics, that body cameras increase the security of our personnel.


What personal data is processed and how?

Moving images and audio are continuously recorded by the body cameras via a pre-recording feature. The recordings are deleted continuously at intervals of ten seconds. This means that recorded footage beyond this limit is only saved if a parking attendant activates the recording function in a threatening situation, whereupon all recordings going forward and within the preceding ten seconds will be saved. The ten seconds prior to activation do not have audio, however, in order to limit the processing of personal data.


Who might appear in the footage recorded?

Personal data is processed automatically as a result of the pre-recording feature described above. The scope of the personal data processing may therefore be considerable when our parking attendants patrol busy areas such as public streets. Individuals present in these areas may be filmed as a result of this.


What is the legal basis for the personal data processing?

Aimo bases this personal data processing on a legitimate interest. Aimo has a legitimate interest to protect Aimo’s staff against threats and violence. Aimo has weighed this interest against the interest of the data subject in protecting their personal privacy and concluded that Aimo’s legitimate interest outweighs that of the data subject. Aimo has primarily considered the following aspects in its assessment:

Is there a way to achieve the same result in a manner that would be less invasive of others’ privacy?

Aimo has previously used assault alarms. However, it has been found that these alarms do not have the same deterring effect in terms of preventing threats and violence against parking attendants as is considered to be the case for body cameras. Aimo has based this conclusion on documented incident reports from parking attendants. There is no other technical solution or alternative that is able to achieve the same outcome.

What measures have been taken to limit the personal data processing by as much as possible? 

Aimo has made sure that camera recordings are only saved if they are needed in order to secure evidence for a police report and subsequent court proceedings. This is achieved through the use of a recording feature that continuously deletes footage that is not actively saved via manual activation by the parking attendant. The staff has been trained to ensure that no more footage than necessary is saved.


How long is the personal data saved?

Saved recordings from the camera are transferred to a central server after the end of each shift and automatically erased locally from the individual camera thereafter. Recordings are saved on the server for one month. They are then erased automatically, unless they are specifically exempted by HR staff in connection with an incident investigation. The reason for retaining recordings during this period is that, in the event an incident occurs, the parking attendant will have time to file a report. The HR team member involved then needs to be given the opportunity to go into the system and exempt the recording from automatic erasure.

Footage marked as evidence will be erased automatically after six months, or earlier if it has already been provided to the prosecutor or the police. The footage is retained solely for the purpose of being provided to the prosecutor or police. The footage may not be used to monitor Aimo staff or otherwise review their performance.


Where is the personal data processed?

All personal data is processed within the EU/EEA. The personal data is not transferred to a third country. The data is stored on Aimo’s servers within the EU/EEA.


Who can access the personal data?

The personal data is only shared with third parties in the event of legal proceedings. In such cases, the data will be shared with the prosecutor and the police. Otherwise, Aimo itself administers the cameras and the technical environment within which the recordings are stored. The supplier of software and the cameras has no access to any of the recorded footage; they merely provide offline hardware and software.


You have the following rights:

  • The right to access personal data on you held by Aimo Park and to be given confirmation as to whether your personal data is processed.
  • If the personal data we hold on you are incorrect, you can contact Aimo Park to have your information corrected.

If you wish to access camera images, we ask that you complete a form to request access to the images. We will ask a number of questions about the information shown on the images and the appearance of the individual data subject. This is because there may be others who appear in the footage and who need to be anonymised.
