BANKS

Surveye designs and installs cutting-edge solutions foranti-theft, fire detection, access control, video surveillance and automation systems in the banking sector.

With extensive experience in this specific sector, Surveye can provide banks with professional effective support in the selection, design and implementation phases of the most suitable integrated system. The solutions offered comply with privacy legislation for employees and the public.

Bank video surveillance systems are the primary tool in deterring criminal behaviour and also provide fundamental evidence in the event of any incidents that may take place. All Surveye bank video surveillance systems comply with the relevant privacy legislation (Legislative Decree 196/03) and the video surveillance regulations of 8 April 2010.

In addition to installing integrated systems, Surveye also ensures that all legal requirements are met and provides a full turnkey solution and ongoing support. In particular these requirements relate to:

  • information for the public and employees to inform them they are in areas with video surveillance systems
  • preliminary checks and notification
  • appointment of data treatment managers
  • definition of security measures
  • length of time recorded images are kept
  • deletion of images
  • the rights of parties involved (article 7 of the Privacy Act).

Article 4 of the Employee Statute, amended by article 23 of Legislative Decree 151/2015 (Jobs Act), also stipulates compliance with restrictions on the remote monitoring of work activities. This states that video surveillance systems must be installed with the mutual agreement of union or company representatives, or authorisation from the local employment office.

In May 2016 the Ministry of Employment published a standard form for requesting authorisation to install video surveillance and geographical positioning systems. This form and the necessary technical documentation need only be submitted in the absence of union representation or a failure to reach agreement with unions.

The Privacy Act (legislative decree 196/03) and the Employee Statute stipulate the issue of fines in cases of non-compliance.
