The recorded images must not be freely accessible to all employees or customers. In its deliberation of April 22, 2010, the CNIL stated that the images captured and recorded must be sufficiently protected against access by unauthorized third parties (Délib. Cnil N°2010-112 du 22-4-10).
Thus, in principle, only security managers, security guards or employees can view them. The people filmed also have a right of access to the images on which they appear (article L. 253-5 CSI). The recorded images can be viewed to remove a doubt.
The person in charge of the system must determine the duration of the conservation of the images of its cameras and must do it in connection with the objective pursued by the installation of the system of surveillance.
The conservation of the images is not superior to 30 days, except for legal proceedings in progress. In fact, some images can be kept for a longer period if this conservation is necessary for an investigation and to serve as proof relative to a security incident. The need for retention is re-evaluated regularly.
Today, Veesion allows the detection of gestures potentially associated with shoplifting. We are also working on another algorithm capable of detecting fraud at traditional checkouts or at self-checkout.
The alerts can be displayed as a popup (in addition to the application) on a PC. Thanks to a customer backoffice (soon available), the user can have a view of the Veesion results on all his points of sale by filtering by dates.
Veesion is a software hosted on a computational server that is implemented on existing cameras. In other words, Veesion does not sell surveillance cameras for retail stores. However, we work in partnership with many suppliers and can provide advice on the supply of video surveillance equipment.
