The practice of scanning and storing the information contained on the driver’s licenses of bar patrons is an unwarranted intrusion into the privacy of patrons and violates the Personal Information Protection Act [SBC 2003] c. 63 (the “Act”). Even if one were to assume that there exist legitimate aims of the scanning and storing practice, the practice fails to meet the legal test under the Act.
