Macy’s Faces Privacy Class Action Over Use of Facial Recognition Software

An Illinois woman has filed a class action lawsuit accusing Macy’s of invasion of privacy through the use of Clearview AI facial recognition software.

Macy’s customer and lead plaintiff Isela Carmine filed her class action lawsuit after reports that the retailer used the Clearview software.

According to the complaint, The New York Times reported in January that Clearview kept a “dystopian surveillance database” that was “leased to the highest bidder.”

In addition, a BuzzFeed News article revealed Clearview was working with more than “2,200 law enforcement agencies, companies and individuals” worldwide, the class action complaint says.

Several other news outlets revealed Macy’s was among several other businesses and government entities that used the Clearview database.

Cincinnati.com reported law enforcement agencies use the Clearview tool to identify crime victims and criminals by comparing crime scene images to other images on the web, including those on public social media accounts.

Because Carmine has “a widespread and active social media presence,” she believes her personal information is contained within Clearview’s database, the complaint says.

According to the class action lawsuit, Macy’s uses in-store video surveillance to capture customers’ images, then sends the images to Clearview. Macy’s is alleged to have run more than 6,000 customers’ identities through the database, which includes the photos and personal data of millions of Americans.

The complaint alleges Clearview acquired all that data by “scraping” publicly available online platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

Clearview has run 3 billion photos through facial recognition software, thereby extracting each face’s biometric data, the complaint says.

“Any private citizen can be identified by uploading a photo to the database,” the complaint states. “Once identified, the end-user – here Macy’s – then has access to all of the individual’s personal details that Clearview has also obtained.”
