The CNIL has closed its investigation against the French commercial centre LECLERC around its excessive use of CCTV devices and a biometric personnel identity system. The investigation was initiated following a complaint in April 2012 and the company corrected the data breaches identified after an on-the- spot check. The CNIL’s President has confirmed that LECLERC’s practices are now compliant with French Personal Data and Privacy Law, but has issued a reminder that any new breaches will be subject to penalties.
