We are strongly committed to civil liberties, as embodied in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. SeeQuestor technology facilitates respect for Article 14, especially the right to a trial without undue delay, and the right to know the case against one. SeeQuestor as a company is conscious of and respects Article 17 privacy rights, including under the interpretation provided by UN Human Rights Committee General Comment 16 (1988), s. 10, which insists on proper legal regulation of the collection and storage of personal data.
Typically, there is a justification for law enforcement agencies under the law for analysing video data in connection with a criminal investigation or search for a missing person, subject to a set of principles - necessity, proportionality and accountability - that protect our civil liberties. We have designed SeeQuestor to allow these principles to be applied with tight authorisation controls, data retention policies and a black box audit trail.
For our SeeQuestor Software as a Service and Format Conversion Service offerings, we have put in place appropriate physical and electronic measures, security policies and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure customer data that we have under our control, from unauthorised access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction or accidental loss.
