3. Sensitive personal data

GDPR defines certain sensitive personal data as special category data, including; data regarding physical or mental health, ethnic origin, religious beliefs or political views etc. We will make every attempt to understand whether the people that we deal with could be regarded as vulnerable. This may involve collecting and using sensitive personal data, during the course of our business activities. We may request sensitive personal data or you may volunteer this information to us, however, we will only use this information for debt collection or enforcement purposes and we will obtain your consent to process this data. We may share your sensitive personal data with our client to ensure your case is dealt with in an appropriate manner. Any sharing of your sensitive personal data will be on the basis that we have your explicit consent or if we are required or permitted to do so under the GDPR.


4. Call recording and body-worn camera footage

Personal data

Whether or not we record calls, obtain images, or capture audio data via our body cameras as part of enforcement will depend upon the nature of your relationship with us.

We operate a dedicated telephone line which debtors/defendants can use to make enquiries regarding payment of debt or in respect of property services. Calls to this line may be recorded.

When calls are recorded, we collect:

  • Audio recording of the conversation
  • The caller’s phone number

Our body worn cameras record and collect:

  • Images and video footage
  • Audio recordings

Body-worn cameras also have the potential to collect sensitive (special category) personal data that may be visible in the images or audio recorded.



Call recordings will be used to:

  • To meet our regulatory requirements
  • Assist in quality monitoring of staff
  • Investigate and resolve complaints
  • Support the detection, investigation, and prevention of crime, including fraud
  • Ensure staff are acting ethically and within the powers of the relevant Writ
  • Assist in staff training
  • Provide feedback to clients

Body-worn cameras are used:

  • To meet our regulatory requirements
  • As part of our enforcement activities
  • To provide an open and transparent service
  • For the safety and security of officers, customers, debtors, and other affected parties
  • As a deterrent to acts of aggression including verbal and/or physical abuse towards our officers
  • To assist the training of staff


Legal basis

The legal basis upon which we process and record telephone calls and use body-worn cameras is that it is necessary in the legitimate interests of our business to do so.

If the personal data amounts to special category data, such as health-related data, then this is processed this on the lawful basis of the legal claim against you on behalf of our client.


Sharing of personal data

We may share, or be asked to share, with our clients a telephone call recording, body-worn camera footage, or information we have gathered. This is to enable them to respond to a complaint or provide us with instructions.

We may also need to share this data with the Enforcement Conduct Board to meet our regulatory requirements.

Your personal data will only be shared with any person or organisation not listed above when we have your prior consent to do this.

Under Data Protection legislation, we may be required or permitted, to disclose your personal data without your explicit consent, for example, if we have a legal obligation to do so for reasons such as:

  • Law enforcement
  • Fraud investigations
  • Regulation and licensing
  • Criminal prosecutions
  • Court proceedings

You may request that your call isn’t recorded. In this situation, you will normally be advised to contact us either in writing or via email.

In exceptional circumstances you may be transferred to a non-recorded phone. This decision will be made by a director in situations where, for example, it is determined that not doing so could cause harm or distress to the caller.

It is our policy that any enforcement agent wearing a body worn camera should activate it only when appropriate in the proper performance of their official duties and where making recordings is consistent with this policy and the law.

We do not permit enforcement agents to use any recording devices without the knowledge of the third party. We process personal data to include images and audio recording as well as the potential to collect sensitive (special category) personal data to the extent that it is visible in the images or audio recorded.

Our calls are recorded and stored securely in the cloud for three months, after which they will be automatically destroyed. If a complaint is raised, the call will be stored for six months or until the complaint is resolved, whichever date is later. In the event that a call is requested under a subject access request (SAR) by a law enforcement agency such as the police or our regulator, the call will be downloaded and retained until such time as it is no longer necessary, for example, the conclusion of a police investigation.

If we wish to use your call recording (or any personal data acquired during a call with us) for a new purpose not covered by this privacy notice, we will provide you with a new notice.

The new notice will:

  • Explain the new usage before we begin the process
  • Set out the relevant purposes and processing conditions

Where necessary, we will seek your consent to the new processing.
