Publishing photos of offenders on Facebook

Publishing photos of offenders on Facebook

Do you have a CCTV in your store; did you shoot a thief and do you want to post the photos on Facebook or on another social network? Don’t do it. Otherwise, you can be fined by the Czech Data Protection Authority. The recordings contain personal data of offenders and by publishing them on Facebook you process them without a legal ground. You are wondering if you can protect your premises with the CCTV in the Czech Republic at all. The answer is yes, but you must pass on the recordings to the police, not to publish them on the Internet.
