CCTV – Big Brother

I was just reading that Tesco are installing Face Scanners to all their tills. They are claiming that it is to target advertising. You would think their loyalty card would do just that but apparently they think it is acceptable to scan their customers.

It is bad enough there is CCTV all over the UK and they have CCTV in stores (which I can accept as a deterrent to thieves) but Tesco thinks that the excuse that other retailers use them flies!

Obviously it is their store and they can do what they like within their stores but if they think that I am going to be happy about having my privacy invaded, then they have another think coming up because I will refuse to enter their store and part with my hard earned cash (which is what they want). I only hope that other people feel the same.

I think very often humans take the easy way out and that might be just accepting that you are being scanned and watched. But the question is where does it stop? When do we say enough?
