The Promotion of Access to Information Act - (PAIA) provides that your Personal Information may be collected for a clearly defined and specific purpose (i.e. security purposes).
We have posted signage that clearly states that CCTV surveillance footage is being collected for security purposes in certain areas. In these circumstances, the law makes an exception to collect your Personal Information without your consent, so long as certain safeguards and protections are put in place to ensure the security of such Personal Information and that such Personal Information is only used for lawful purposes.
Another point to emphasise here is that individuals have contracts with their respective security companies or Residents’ Associations.
