  1. Purpose of surveillance

Video surveillance is carried out in order to ensure the safety of people and property in the area, facilities, and premises of the company BAVARSKI STOLP d.o.o. (Hotel InterContinental Ljubljana) and in order to monitor entries and exits, all in accordance with the provision of Articles 77(1) and 78(1) of the Personal Data Protection Act (ZVOP-2) and the provision of Article 6(1), point (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR.

It is strictly necessary for the safety of the employees, guests, and their property, as well as the company’s property that video surveillance is carried out at entry points to the hotel and in all places where guests and employees have freedom of movement. Due to the large area of the hotel, any other manner of protection for people and property would be less efficient.

For that purpose, we process the following personal information: data subject’s recording (image), location information, and date and time of recording. 

Prior to implementing the video surveillance, the controller performed a balancing test with which they ascertained that their legitimate interest prevails over the data subjects’ legitimate expectations of privacy in the footage. In summary, the controller ascertained that a large number of guests and external visitors flow in and out of the hotel on a daily basis, while the surface area of the hotel is so large that the company can ensure the safety of its property and people in the hotel solely through the use of a video surveillance system. The guests expect a high level of safety, particularly those who stay overnight in the hotel. The guests’ collective interests for a safe stay in the hotel prevail over the possible interests of data subjects to privacy. In this context, it is important that only common areas are under video surveillance, where multiple hotel guests, visitors, or employees have access, however, in hotel rooms, sanitary facilities, changing rooms, elevators, offices etc., a higher level of privacy is ensured and there is no video surveillance on such premises.

  • there is no further processing or particular impacts of processing in relation to the video footage;
  • video footage is not transferred to third countries;
