Camera Surveillance

Basic-Fit Regulations for camera surveillance

Quality, health and safety are of great importance to Basic-Fit. Our members and employees must feel comfortable and safe in their sports club. To guarantee this as much as possible, our sports clubs, buildings and sites are protected by cameras. For example, if one of our members becomes unwell or if there is any danger such as aggression, our emergency center (NEN and ISO-certified company alarm center) can immediately contact the emergency services. We are fully aware that camera surveillance also affects the privacy of our members and employees, and therefore we monitor with the utmost care. For example, no camera surveillance takes place in changing rooms or sanitary facilities and, in principle, monitoring only takes place reactively. This means that images are only viewed after an incident has been reported. This camera surveillance regulation sets rules and principles to guarantee the privacy of our members and employees as much as possible. It also offers transparency about our methods. Basic-Fit strives to use camera surveillance in the most honest and transparent way possible.
