7-Eleven Stores in Australia breached privacy through facial recognition software

A recent decision of the Privacy Commission found that 7-Eleven Stores breached the privacy of Australians by photographing customers who completed in store surveys, and then used facial recognition software to determine characteristics of the customers.

See Decision

The store was in breach because it

  • collected individuals’ sensitive information without consent, and where that
    information was not reasonably necessary for the store’s functions and
    activities, and

  • failed to take reasonable steps to notify individuals about the fact and circumstances
    of collection and the purposes of collection of that information.
