We provide systems and process personal data for the prevention and detection of crime.
Facewatch are the Data Controller for all personal data we process. Our customers are businesses (Subscribers) who must display signage saying that Facewatch facial recognition is in operation.
The Facewatch Real Time Alerting system uses facial recognition to instantly alert Subscribers when Subjects Of Interest (SOIs) enter their premises. See below for a description of an SOI.
Subscribers are able to report new SOIs through incidents which include a formal witness statement. The Subscriber can only view the watchlist of SOIs that they have uploaded.
