Maximum retention period

There are several reasons why personal data documents and images from surveillance cameras have a maximum retention period. One of the main reasons is that the retention of this data may be an invasion of the privacy of the individuals concerned. It is therefore essential that these data are not kept for longer than is strictly necessary.

Another reason is that this data may become obsolete. Over time, personal data may lose its relevance and therefore its retention is no longer necessary. The same applies to images from surveillance cameras: over time, the value of these images may decrease, for example because the images are no longer usable for the purpose for which they were collected.
