In brief

On 2 February 2024, the Agency for Access to Public Information (AAIP) published Resolution No. 38/2024 (“Resolution“) in the Official Gazette. The Resolution updates the poster template that must be placed in areas where digital images are collected via video surveillance.


In focus

Personal Data Protection Law 25,326 (Law) aims to ensure that data subjects have access to the contact information of persons responsible for the processing of personal data, including details about communication channels to make queries or file complaints.

Under the Law, images and video recordings are considered personal data since data subjects may be identified through the data collected.

The updated poster, which includes a QR code, puts emphasis on the name, address, website, email and contact number of the person responsible for processing video surveillance data so that data subjects can properly exercise their rights of access, rectification, and deletion of personal data. The QR code redirects to the AAIP’s website, which includes information on personal data protection and a search engine to learn which databases are registered and which entities are responsible for them, among other information.
