Collection of information

Perpetual Guardian has installed CCTV cameras at some of our offices in New Zealand. Signage is installed at any Perpetual Guardian office where CCTV is in operation, notifying employees and visitors of its operation. The CCTV collects visual images only.

Purpose for collection of information

  • Keeping people (our employees and visitors) safe at our sites; and
  • Improving security and deterring and investigating criminal events, anti-social behaviours and health and safety incidents occurring at our offices.

Use of collected information

CCTV footage will generally only be kept for up to 90 days and will only ever be viewed by a limited number of authorised Perpetual Guardian employees. Perpetual Guardian may disclose personal information collected via CCTV for the purposes listed above and as otherwise permitted or required by law, which may include disclosure to the New Zealand Police where criminal activity is reported or suspected.
