• The purpose of CCTV should be widely known.

• The images and information obtained from CCTV should only be used for the purpose for which it was recorded. For example, if a company installs CCTV to stop theft it should not be used to check that employees are wearing the correct uniform.

• People should be made aware that they are being recorded by CCTV. Notices indicating that CCTV is being used in the area should always be displayed.” "For example, if persons are disobeying the workplace dress-code, however; the intent of the surveillance was to monitor misbehaviour, employers have the potential to act on what has been seen disregarding the surveillance intent." They can still see you... so, that's stupid. Surveillance is VERY beneficial, therefore they don't WANT to get rid of it. PRIVACY is still an issue IN CONCLUSION PRIVACY is still an issue...
