Geely, a Swedish company (“Geely”, “we”, “our” and “us”), is controller for the processing of your personal data[1] as described below. Our camera surveillance means that we process your personal data if you are caught by one of our cameras used for camera surveillance.

From where do we collect your personal data?

We will process your personal data which we have collected through our use of camera surveillance.


Are you required to provide personal data to us?

There are no legal requirements for you to provide your personal data when visiting us, but if you visit areas on which we use camera surveillance we will process your personal data.


Purposes for processing and lawful basis

We process your personal data when it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests. However, our legitimate interest will never provide a legal basis for our processing if your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate interest. We carry out a balancing test to find out if our legitimate interests outweigh your interests. Our interests can outweigh your interests if we can show compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests or if our processing is necessary for the purpose of establishing, exercising or defending against legal claims.

In this case, we rely on the legal basis that processing of your personal data is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interest to be able to provide our employees with a safe work environment and to create a safe place for our visitors. In addition, we process your personal data to protect our property by being able to prepare and investigate any claims, such as to be able to pursue an insurance case or claim for damages.

If you want to find out more about our balancing test in relation to the above, do not hesitate to contact us.

In case a law enforcement authority makes a request to view the camera surveillance footage

In some cases, we disclose and/or store recorded material from our camera surveillance at the request of the police or other law enforcement agency. We do this when disclosure and/or storage is necessary to follow decisions made by authorities. The processing in this respect is based on that the processing is necessary in order for us to fulfil a legal obligation.


[1] Personal data is all information that relates to you, for example your image in recorded material.


Storage period

Recorded material from our camera surveillance will be stored for a maximum of fourteen (14) days from the recording date, provided that nothing happens which means that we need to store the material for an extended period of time, for example in order to exercise our rights or make or defend legal claims.

Material that the police or other law enforcement agency requires that we disclose through a regulatory decisions and/or store according to a regulatory decision will be stored as long as it is required to comply with such decision.


Who can gain access to your personal data and why?

Your personal data is primarily processed by us. In addition, the security companies that help us with our camera surveillance will have access to recorded material. The security companies will process this material as our processor, which means that they will only process your personal data according to our instructions.

An authority that investigates a possible crime may, through a regulatory decision, require that we give them access to recorded material.

If you want to know more about who we share your personal data with, please feel free to contact us. Our contact details can be found in the beginning of this information notice.
