John Nikoloudis, Eleutherias 5, 56334, Thessaloniki, tel. +30 6986514279, email. nikoloudisjohn@mbc.com.gr

2.Purpose of processing and legal basis:

We use a surveillance system for the protection of personel and property. The processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us as the controller (Article 6 para. 1.f GDPR).

3.Analysis of legitimate interests:

Our legal interest consists in the need to protect our site and the goods located in it from illegal acts, such as theft. The same applies to the safety of life, physical integrity, health and property of our staff and third parties who are legally present in the supervised area. The surveillance systems that have been installed, although they have the ability to record sound, have this functionality disabled in the cameras, but also in the recorder. We only collect image data and limit the capture in areas we have assessed as having an increased likelihood of illegal acts being committed e.g. theft, such as at our checkouts and at the entrance, without focusing on areas where the privacy of the persons whose image is taken may be unduly restricted, including their right to respect for personal data.


The guarded material is only accessible by our competent / authorized personnel who are in charge of site security. This material is not passed on to third parties, with the exception of the following cases:

Α) To the competent judicial, prosecutorial and police authorities when it includes information necessary for the investigation of a criminal act, which concerns persons or goods of the data controller.

 Β) To the competent judicial, prosecutorial and police authorities when they request data, legally, in the exercise of their duties.

Γ) To the victim or perpetrator of a criminal act, when it comes to data that may constitute evidence of the act.

5.Compliance time:

We keep the data for fifteen (15) days, after which it is automatically deleted. In the event that we discover an incident during this period, we isolate part of the video and keep it for up to one (1) month, with the aim of investigating the incident and initiating legal proceedings to defend our legal interests, while if the incident concerns third we will keep the video for up to three (3) more months.

6.Rights of data subjects:

Data subjects have the following rights:

  • Right of access: you have the right to know whether we are processing your image and, if so, to receive a copy of it.
  • Right to restriction: you have the right to ask us to restrict the processing, such as not to delete data that you consider necessary to establish, exercise or support legal claims.
  • Right to object: you have the right to object to processing.
  • Right to deletion: you have the right to request that we delete your data.

 You can exercise your rights by sending an e-mail to the address info@mbc.com.gr or a letter to our postal address or by submitting the request yourself, in person, to the address of the headquarters. In order to consider a request related to your image, you will need to tell us approximately when you came into range of the cameras and provide us with an image of you to help us identify your own data and mask the data of third-party images. Alternatively, we allow you to come to our premises to show you the images in which you appear. We also point out that the exercise of the right to object or deletion does not imply the immediate deletion of data or the modification of processing. In any case, we will answer you in detail as soon as possible, within the deadlines set by GDPR.

7.Right to lodge a complaint:

 If you believe that the processing of your data violates Regulation (EU) 2016/679, you have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority.

The competent supervisory authority for Greece is the Data Protection Authority, Kifisias 1-3, 115 23, Athens, https://www.dpa.gr/, tel. 2106475600
