Dear Spilsbury, David,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to this request.

I would like to say that the fact the cameras were not turned on does not preclude you from conducting a DPIA. That process would've helped the Museum make appropriate choices about the deployment of this technology and I sincerely hope that the ICO are consulted before this technology is used again.

Yours sincerely,

Robb Stark
