Woolworths responded to the initial post by saying, ”Hi again, Sonal. We have had extensive discussions with the relevant stakeholders in the business and confirm that the cameras in the fitting room is according to our specification, which is that it be fixed and only focuses on the entrance to the fitting rooms in order to review process. We have investigated with the stores and can assure you that these cameras are installed in such a way that it is not at all possible to see into the fitting room cubicles and it is not a rotating camera.”
