 CCTV information notice for Crowndell Consulting Limited 

Crowndell Consulting Limited manages the operation of CCTV on both of its hotel, bar and restaurant sites, including around the entrance and exterior of the buildings. On visiting either venue, we may capture CCTV footage of you. 

What is the CCTV footage used for?
The footage we record is used for the prevention and detection of crime and to protect public safety on our premises. We will only share CCTV footage where we are legally obliged to do so, or where we can do so under exemptions in the Data Protection Act – for example for the prevention or detection of crime. 

Where is the CCTV?
Cameras operate at various locations around each site, with appropriate signage in place to inform the public that they be being recorded. This personal information may include your activities, your face, car registration details and other visual information about you which is recorded on our CCTV system.  

 Where is the CCTV footage stored?
CCTV footage is kept in a key-pad locked room and can only be accessed by authorised Crowndell Consulting Ltd Employees. The footage is then stored for up to 30 days, upon which time the data is automatically deleted.  

When might footage be stored for longer?
Footage may be kept for longer than the standard retention time following requests from: 

  • The police and other law enforcement agencies: to carry out policing, assist investigations, trace missing people and investigate alleged criminal activities 
  • The security services: where relevant for matters of national security 
  • People who have been injured, attacked or had property damaged or stolen and their insurance providers: to assist them with any criminal or civil investigations or legal proceedings 
  • People who have been involved in road traffic accidents and their insurance providers: to assist with insurance claims, legal claims and investigations 
  • Private and other investigators: to aid their investigations 
  • Any relevant regulators: where we are required to do so by law or to assist with their investigations or initiatives, and this includes but is not limited to the ICO 

 This period can vary as it will depend upon the circumstances of the case, but for criminal or civil legal proceedings this could mean that the personal information is retained until after the legal case and any appeals have been concluded (which could be up to several years). Once no longer required, we will then delete the personal information.  

Who do we share your data with?
We share your personal information with the following parties:  

  • Suppliers, service providers and advisors to us to manage and operate the CCTV system as our data processor and organisations that provide us with legal, property and insurance advice.  
  •  Joint data controllers who may jointly operate and maintain the CCTV system with us.  

We do not disclose personal information to anyone else except as set out above unless we have your consent, or we are legally obliged to do so. We do not sell your data.  

What are your rights?
You have the right to see footage that you appear in and you can make this request by contacting Crowndell Consulting Limited via the details included at the top of this document.   

If, as determined by us, the lawful basis upon which we process your personal information changes, we will notify you about the change and any new lawful basis to be used if required. We shall stop processing your personal information if the lawful basis used is no longer relevant. 

We endeavour to keep our records as up to date as possible. If want to find out about the personal data held by us, please email at, you can also write to: The Marketing Team, The Plume of Feathers, Mitchell, TR8 5AX.
