4) Recordings viewing days and auction room

We would like to point out that, for security reasons, images are taken of all visitors in our building during the viewing days. These images will be deleted (automatically) after 1 month. During the auction, there will also be recordings in the auction room. The camera is aimed at the auction table with the intention of recording the progress of the auction. We want to prevent you from coming into the picture, the camera is set up in such a way that visitors are not recognizable in the picture. However, when you walk forward, that cannot be ruled out completely.
