Spain: AEPD fines Zhang Bordeta €6,000 for unlawful use of CCTV cameras

The Spanish data protection authority ('AEPD') issued, on 3 February 2020, a resolution ('the Resolution') in proceeding PS/00397/2019, fining Zhang Bordeta 2006, S.L. €6,000 for disproportionate monitoring of public roads via CCTV. In particular, the AEPD held that Zhang Bordeta had not only recorded images from its shop and restaurant, but also images of the public street which was outside the permitted surveillance scope, and had not sufficiently informed the concerned persons. Moreover, the AEPD held that when determining the sanction, it took into account the nature of the infringement and the negligence of Zhang Bordeta to adjust their surveillance system.
