The decision was taken after the filing of several complaints with the Cnil, the National Commission for Informatics and Freedoms.

The Université Côte d'Azur announced on Thursday that two CCTV cameras installed in early November in classrooms of the National Higher Institute of Teaching and Education (Inspé), which trains future teachers, will be withdrawn .

In a press release sent to

20 Minutes

, the university specifies that their objective was to "monitor the main exits of the site in order to secure potential intrusions, in accordance with the recommendations of the Vigipirate plan".

"Lack of information for the persons concerned"

Except that the faculty had not been notified of their installation, according to Gilles Jean, departmental secretary of SNUipp, triggering an outcry revealed Wednesday by 

Liberation

.

The CNIL confirmed having received complaints precisely denouncing "the lack of information for the people concerned and the installation of two cameras in classrooms".

The university specifies that it "never had either the wish or the interest to film anything other than the exits of the establishment" and that these cameras had not yet been "put into service".

In 2019, the CNIL recalled that, “except in exceptional circumstances”, a video surveillance system cannot place students or employees “under systematic and continuous surveillance”.

It also called on the establishments concerned to "only film the accesses and circulation areas".
