How do you think stores collecting personal data without informing customer
Hi guys, I’m a system integrator. One of my daily tasks is to install cameras in different places including the retail stores to help them do loss prevention, and sometimes analyze shopper behaviors.
Normally, I would warn the store managers or brand managers to be careful with data collecting, because the privacy issue might lead to big troubles. I mean they supposed to let the shopper know the store will collect big data and it should be done before people enter their stores. But it seems like the stores only partially or didn’t even tell shoppers that they are collecting data and put it into a database.
How would you react if you knew your personal data is collected without getting your approval? I’m not talking about your personal information, but more like big data: age, gender as a portion, etc.
