When you purchase alcohol.

Wonder what their data retention and security policies are?

Scanning the entire front or just swiping the ID to get the age info off the strip on the back?    This has been going on for years at gas stations and liquor stores.

this was instituted because doing the basic math to calculate age was too hard for most cashiers, it's not nefarious, people are just really dumb.

Not sure. WADL's have a QR-looking strip across the entire back of the license. Plus a small barcode.

I've never had mine scanned when guying alcohol, no matter at a grocery store, liquor store, or bar. Most times, when I go to hand it to them, they just say, "No need, you're good."

Shell (at least johnny's Market) does this, as does Meijer. Well, they require "ID".

At both I've used my Passport Card, they was all like "Cool, neat" and accepted it.

Of course, it's important unless you are voting then it's restrictive.

All the places around here scan your ID for anything age restricted. Doesn't matter how old the person is.

I just use a phone number on their keypad.  Makes watching traffic on he data tough to do.

The range I go to started scanning DLs. They use it to see if you've filled out a waiver form for the year and to confirm you're a member. It's pretty cool. You can opt out if you want of course and they just enter your name manually. Just makes things go quicker at check in.

If you used a credit or debit card to make the purchase, you have no reason to be mad they scanned your ID.

They got me once. Every time since then they have asked for it and I told them that they could see it but not scan it if I was paying cash.

If you're going to enter your phone number for the sale price and pay with a card, it's silly to argue about privacy of scanning the DL.

Costco does the same.  I bought rum there for baking - really.  Even help to pick up a bottle for the village librarian (we do that around here to save each other gas/milelage).

Therefore, it isn't a thing. Except it's been a thing for several years minimum.
It annoys me, as do the people at my nearest Kroger. So I patronize a small independent mom and pop a few miles away. They have cameras though, so even if I pay cash I can't make it 1968.

If they are like other retailers, their data protection policies are probably pretty tight, with overlapping administrative and technical controls to prevent the misuse, unauthorized access, and leakage of sensitive customer data.

j/k, of course.  Their policies are likely abysmal, like so many retailers.

A couple of things

#1 It easily calculates your age and removes math errors

#2 It proves to the liquor authority that the store and or clerks are reviewing IDs. The gas stations here grade the cashiers on the amount of beer ID scans per alcohol purchases.


And I swear to God I've read somewhere where they convicted someone for purchasing alcohol which killed a minor in a car crash based on the ID scanned at the register, so it was indeed saved in database at least for some sort of time frame

Basha's and Walmart are the only places I buy beer.  The cashiers never ask me for an ID.  Except for the ugly old woman at the Show Low Walfart.  She just wanted to get more info on my old ass.  Methinks she is lonely.  I avoid going there.  

We need a Fry's, beeg time.
