  • Personal details (name, IDN, business with which you are affiliated, person visited, etc.). We will ask you for this personal data when you come to the Reception desk for the issue of a visitor’s pass to enable you to access the facilities.
  • Personal data generated by your visitor’s pass. Each time that you pass your card over the access turnstile the time of entry or departure will be stored.
  • Video recordings.. While you are within the area covered by the videosurveillance cameras installed at our building your image may be recorded. There are no hidden cameras. There are signs to identify all the cameras.

We process your personal data in accordance with the public interest of the Agbar Foundation in maintaining the security of its facilities and of the goods and people who may be at such facilities.


V. Who do we share personal data with?

Your personal data may be accessed by businesses with whom we have contracted for the provision of reception and security services and the technical maintenance of our videosurveillance cameras and access turnstiles. The Agbar Foundation ensures that all entities providing such services are in compliance with the law relating to the protection of personal data which applies to them in their capacity as data processors.

Personal data will not be disclosed to third parties except when required by legal obligation. In the event of the detection of the occurrence of a security incident or if we have reason to believe that an offence (theft, criminal damage, assault, etc.) has been committed, the personal data collected by our videosurveillance cameras and access control systems will be made available to the forces of law and order and competent judges and courts.


VI. For how long will we retain your personal data?

The personal data collected will be deleted within no more than 30 days (from the time of recording). By exception, the Agbar Foundation will keep a copy of the personal data for a longer period that there has been a security incident or we have reasons to believe that an offence (theft, for example) has been committed.


VII. Your rights

Current data protection law gives you a number of rights:

  • Right of access to your personal data and to obtain a copy.
  • Right of erasure or rectification.
  • Right to restriction of processing.
  • Right of objection.
  • Right to portability of the personal data that you have provided.
