Fair enough - I think I will drop them an email about it. Hadn’t thought it was very clear but perhaps my eyesight is a bit naff!!

Out of interest what are the legalities with things like the various online Broads webcams paladine?

I like the idea of this though, seems to have had success with other councils ‘shaming’ things like vans fly tipping commercial waste. If anything it’ll raise awareness hopefully.

"Out of interest what are the legalities with things like the various online Broads webcams..."

Each case would be judged separately. It very much depends on whether the installation is by a private individual or by a business/organisation; has the installation been registered; what is the purpose of the installation; are any data recorded; what is the purpose for which that data are recorded; has the data been used for some other purpose, etc.

There is a useful guide on the ICO web site https://ico.org.uk/media/for-organisations/documents/1542/cctv-code-of-practice.pdf Of particular note are the sections relating to disclosure and retention of the data.

Data protection is something of a minefield, and the BNA might just have stepped onto a mine.

Interesting. They’ve replied now, appreciated the message and said that the blurred video is on YouTube now instead.

Well, it seems that someone in the BNA takes note of what we say. That non-compliant video has now been edited to blur the faces of the holiday-makers, and the time and date have been removed. I hope someone got a talking to.

Although the BNA has edited its video to blur out the faces of the people involved, there is still the question of retention of data and use other than for the registered purpose.

I suspect the registered purpose was for security and, possibly, monitoring vessels mooring at the Yacht Station. Ad hoc recording of passing boats, on the off-chance someone might be doing something silly is, I suggest, a highly unlikely purpose.

The incident took place in April 2019. Although there is no statutory limit on how long data may be retained, it should only be retained for the time it is relevant to the registered purpose. I hardly think 2 years is appropriate in any case not involving court action. I will be sending a copy of the video to the ICO's office for their opinion.

I presume that someone has had time on their hands during lockdown. I wonder just how much time was spent trawling through hours and hours of security tapes?

I have received a lengthy email from the Broads No-Authority Data Protection Officer, the salient points of which are:

”I have reviewed the timeline, the original posted content and I have concluded  that this error has resulted in a breach of data protection and the actions have fallen short of our normally high reporting standards.

I have reported this matter to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO)...

...Following this recent error, I have put in place a number of safeguards to prevent this type of low level data breach happening again and we will be reviewing any retained CCTV images to ensure data retention passes GDPR and Data Protection.

These new processes have been provided to the ICO as part of the self-reporting format.”


I have been in contact with the ICO’s office. The actions the BNA has now taken are deemed to be acceptable, although the retention of the data for 2 years raised an eyebrow, as being an excessive period of time.

Hopefully, those actions will include giving the media team lessons on data handling! I would have thought that such knowledge of the data legislation would have been a requisite for any candidate for the job.
