Commissioner Queries Nightspot ID Check Data Security
DATA PROTECTION—NEW ZEALANDOctober 18, 2012
New Zealand’s privacy commissioner wants to know how bars and other nightspots are protecting data collected from an identity scanning initiative, Radio New Zealand reports. The Trinity Group is rolling out a trial system that aims to help nightspots keep out potential troublemakers. The group’s managing director said data collected will be deleted once the trial is over, and a supplier said the retained data is encrypted.
