Possibly illegal cameras on Dutch National Railways Billboards

The Dutch Railway company, NS, has been found to allow advertisers to insert cameras in their billboards to monitor travelers in order to study how long people look at the billboard.  It has become known that at Amsterdam Central Station there are 35 such digital billboards.  According to a spokesperson of privacy watchdog, Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens, the use of the cameras may well be illegal.
