1. Subject of this data protection notice
The protection of your personal data is a major and very important concern for us and is taken into account in all our business processes. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
In the following, we would therefore like to inform you with a detailed overview of the processing of your personal data collected via Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) on IONITY charging sites.
Please note: Some of our sites are surveilled by the property owner (e.g. the nearby petrol station). IONITY is not in charge of those camera systems. This notice is therefore not applicable for those CCTV.
Furthermore, we would like to inform you about the rights you are entitled to and the technical and organisational protective measures we have taken with regard to the processing of your data.

3. Collection and use of data
Our CCTV is used to capture and monitor images of events that take place on specific charging sites in real time. The images are also recorded on a hard drive for a defined retention period. We use different types of cameras: some cameras are focussed on a fixed location, in exceptional cases we may also use a camera with dynamic angle settings and a zoom functionality that may be operated and set remotely.
The cameras record any movement within the surveilled area together with time, date and location. All cameras operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The image quality in most cases identification of those in the camera's area of coverage.
The cameras will capture all environmental data of the camera's area of coverage, including persons, vehicle number plates and drivers located within the area of coverage.
4. Purpose and legal basis of the data processing
We operate CCTV because it is necessary to protect legitimate interests of IONITY or a third party (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In detail:
- Protecting the health and safety of our customers
- Protecting property and infrastructure on our charging sites
- Ensuring the efficient operation of our charging sites
- The exercise or defence of legal claims
- Prevention and detecting criminal acts.
5. Protection and safeguards
We as well as our contractually bound processors are utilising the most up to date technical and organisational security measures to protect your data from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, deletion or unauthorised access. Those security measures will be continuously improved upon in line with technological developments.
6. Service providers and data transfer to third parties
In order to fulfil the aforementioned purposes, your personal data is passed on to service providers supporting us in maintenance services and efficient operation of our camera systems. All service providers are carefully selected and commissioned in writing according to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation. These service providers are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored by us.
Your data will otherwise only be passed on to other third parties if this data protection notice expressly refers to this or if we are legally obliged to transfer personal data.
