    Default Consent for your photographic data to be stored and shared at an airport?

    Apparently, at USA airports, if you're an American citizen facial recognition software at airports only store your image for 12 hrs. Question is who do they share it with and have you given permission to the airline or airport authority to share it with other organisations or government agencies?

    With regards to privacy regulations not just in the usa but elsewhere too - at what point does one give consent, sign or approve the storage, analysis and sharing of your image and/or biometric data?

    Do they need your consent? Do you unwittingly give consent? In the UK you can checkin to your flight upto 28 days before your flight. What is the logic of that? Remember the old days of going to a check-in desk to check-in and let people know you were in the building???!?!?! Now they overbook the flights cos everyone's checkedin and yet they're not there.

    I think this will be a hot topic in the on coming months, and if you're leaving the US via an airport your image can be retained for 2 weeks, but if you're a non USA citizen arriving in the usa, your image apparently can be stored for up to 75 years!!!!

    I'm just curious about consent, privacy laws and where it will all end. What's your thoughts on all this?

    Eeeee me.

    Them storing it for 12 hours means nothing since after 11 hours and 59 minutes they can send it to another party which will keep it forever thus following regulations.
    Even if they don't send it, it does not mean no one has access to it during the 12 hours, so again it means nothing.
    Information is not easily contained.
    Also even if they don't keep the image, it does not mean that once the person is identified their metadata cannot be stored indefinitely.
    I don't think the word privacy means anything to those who need the data.

    I canít believe what Iím seeing! While running a facial recognition pilot, one man (understandably imho) covered himself up. The police forced him to show his face (& then fined him for disorderly conduct). This is dangerous & terrifying.
