A council apartment tenant says he has not been able to use his garden for more than a year because of a neighbor’s door-mounted camera.

Mark Fieman violates data protection laws and calls on the Refereeing Council to take action.

He feels his privacy has been compromised when camera footage of four-room apartments in Foxby, Paisley, enters the garden.

Mark, 55, says he feels he will not be able to use the site until March 2020 when the ring door camera is installed.

He had no contact with the local authorities to get rid of him, so he even tried the information commissioner’s office in Edinburgh.

“I have spoken to the police and they have told me who the civil case is. The council is telling me to speak to the police,” Mark said.

I just want it removed. I feel like I am always seen and I have no privacy in my own garden.

I don’t feel comfortable with the camera there. It is only about two feet away. ‘

The Office of the Information Commissioner is a British independent authority established to protect information rights in the public interest.

It says: Data protection laws do not apply if the cameras cover only the user’s personal property, including their garden.

Therefore, visitors to these cameras do not have certain data protection rights in relation to the images taken on those cameras.

If the cameras capture images of people outside the user’s property — for example, in neighbors’ homes or gardens, in common areas, or on a public road or street, then neighbors, passers-by, and anyone else. Cameras have rights under data protection laws.

Capturing and capturing such images is not in itself a violation of data protection laws.

However, CCTV users must abide by these rules and respect the data protection rights of their occupants.

‘This applies to any video surveillance equipment installed or adjusted on the home, and may include cameras fitted with door bells.’

The ICO also has the right to say that it is being recorded in cases such as Mark’s and to request any copies of its recordings or to request the cancellation of any recordings.

An independent regulator also has the right to request that the camera never be used.

Mark says: “It is unacceptable. I don’t know why it needs to be recorded.

In this case, I have some rights, and something must be done about it.

RF Fresher Council says tenants need a permit when repairing any equipment for council property.

A spokesman for the authority added: “As we seek to resolve this issue, the local housing officer continues to advise Faiman.”

Any tenant or resident who uses a film device in a film must do so responsibly to respect the privacy of others.
