Smile, Your Picture Is Being Taken & You Are Being Lied To As Well

Cadillac Fairview, a major mall real estate company collected 5 million images of shoppers, say privacy watchdogs

 

'Shoppers had no reason to expect their image was being collected,' says federal privacy commissioner

In the coverage I heard on CBC Radio, not once was an explanation offered as to what they intended to do or actually did with the data they collected. They just mentioned that all the data was destroyed. But did they use it for targeted advertisements? Did they send coupons targeting your shopping preferences? Anyway, it is despicable because first and foremost they did not get explicit consent - they obsfucated what they were doing with their information decals.
