Companies would be prohibited from using customers’ fingerprints, DNA and other biometric information for purposes beyond what a customer could reasonably expect under a bill before a New Hampshire Senate committee.
The bill, which passed the House in March, would allow customers to file complaints under New Hampshire’s Consumer Protection Act. It defines biometric information as “an individual’s physiological, biological, or behavioral characteristics,” including images of the iris, retina, face and fingerprints; voice recordings; and sleep, health or exercise data that contains identifying information.
