Florida Biometric Information Privacy Act
Last week, I posted a blog discussing the need for protection of biometric information in Florida. Just two days after I published the blog, the Florida Legislature introduced a bill to create the “Florida Biometric Information Privacy Act.” The purpose of the Act is to establish requirements and restrictions on private entities as to the use, collection, and maintenance of biometric identifiers and biometric information.
While I would love to take credit for the bill, it was probably the result of recent court decisions under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act that triggered the bill. Because the proposed Act has some major implications for Florida companies and consumers, I wrote a client alert (rather than a blog post) on the topic. To review the client alert, click here.
