CCTV at Destiny Church Wakefield

To ensure the safety and security of people visiting and working at Destiny Christian Church – Wakefield and to communicate our services we operate CCTV cameras. These collect recognisable images of people in locations across our building and carparking areas.

Signs are in place informing people that CCTV is being used. We retain CCTV data for 28 days. Any person whose image is recorded on our CCTV system has a right to seek and be supplied with a copy of their own personal data from the footage where practicable.
