We at ASAP Taxis believe that CCTV systems have a legitimate role to play in helping to maintain a safe and secure environment for all of our drivers and passengers. We do however recognise that this may raise concerns about the effect on individuals and their privacy. This CCTV Policy is intended to address any concerns you may have.
Images and/or audio recorded by surveillance systems are Personal Data which must be processed in accordance with data protection laws and standards set out by the ICO. ASAP Taxis is committed to complying with its legal obligations and ensuring that the legal rights of our drivers and passengers relating to their Personal Data are recognised and respected.
