Lawsuit On Biometric Data Reaches State Supreme Court by The 21st published on 2018-07-17T17:45:37Z If you’ve visited any amusement parks this summer you’ll know admission prices can be pretty stiff. But that’s not the only cost - you might also be giving away some biometric information - like fingerprints and facial recognition. That’s what happened when a child from Lake County bought a season pass to Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, and the park allegedly captured fingerprint information without written consent. In response the child’s mother sued - and now that case, Rosenbach v. Six Flags, is before the Illinois Supreme Court. That case could affect a state law that’s considered one of the most protective — or restrictive — in the country. It’s called the Biometric Information Privacy Act or BIPA, which bans companies from using biometrics without user consent.
