IT’S THE LAW (08/17/2021)

New York City adds broad biometric privacy controls for retail, restaurants, entertainment venues, similar to Illinois’s BIPA biometric law, to New York City’s Admin. Code §§ 22-1201. Businesses are required to post clear and visible signage near all customer entrances and provide detail on their practices with regard to biometric data collection and use of the information. This includes, but is not limited to facial, retinal, iris and fingerprint scans, and hand scans.
