17 Feb National Law Review: Consider Privacy Laws When Deploying Facial Recognition
In a recent article called “Buyer Beware: Facial Recognition and the Current Legal Landscape” legal news website The National Law Review advised biometrics-based solutions providers to first consider evolving consumer privacy laws before implementing such technologies.
In the article, partners of law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP extensively discussed the Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), and touched up on the Consumer Privacy Protection Act in November 2017 by Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT).
The authors also recommended that retailers should think how they will obtain user consent, how the data will be handled, and how they will prevent or deal with potential data breaches.
