In France law is very strict. Employees (helps, Au pairs, I guess sitters as well) can’ t be filmed where they work, where they rest. Cameras can be put only facing entrances or exits, garages of non public buildings. Only for security reasons.
Have you ever been filmed indoors ? Did owners warn you before you arrived ?
We’ve been filmed in England : outside, there were cameras all around the house. The owners warned us on their departure. I wondered whether they watched the vidéos when they went back (or already from where they were gone ? on a computer, a cell phone ?).
Did they want to check at what time we went outside to feed the poultry, how many times we had left the dogs inside (they could stay outside free as long as we were with them) and for how long…
I did not ask them why they had not switched them off, they were really charming, but we wondered how long they had kept the videos ? 1 month ? 1 year ? They did not tell.
I could understand cameras were important for them, it was a huge home, a huge park with no fence at all (only a “ultrasons” fence for the 3 dogs : with their collars “ultrasons” as well, they could not go outside the limits of the property
Result ? Although the home was remote, we never went outside undressed… even in pyjamas
