The digital images recorded by the CCTV are held securely and are deleted on a regular basis, usually after 21 days. It may be retained for a longer period when used to investigate a crime, or as required by law enforcement, regulatory bodies and our insurance partners. 

Access to, and disclosure of images are restricted. Images can only be disclosed in accordance with the purposes for which they were originally collected.

Disclosure to third parties will be limited to:

  • Prosecution agencies such as the Crown Law Office
  • Legal representatives
  • Department managers involved with internal staffing issues
  • Insurance partners and regulatory bodies, such as Worksafe
  • Individuals whose images have retained, unless disclosure would prejudice a criminal case, or apprehension or prosecution of offenders


The Dealer Principal of Team Hutchinson Ford, or another senior manager acting in their absence, are the only people permitted to authorise disclosure of images to external third parties. All requests for disclosure and access to images will be documented. If disclosure is denied, the reason will be recorded.
