It has nothing to do with state law. It's store policy dictated by the insurers.<quoted text> In West Virginia, by state law, all stores selling alcohol (with the exception of one store mom and pop outlets) must enter the birth date of all people buying alcohol. They don't scan the license yet but there is no getting around the law. Once in a hurry I left my ID in the truck. Trying to save time I just told the clerk my birth date. She pointed over her shoulder at the camera and said if she sold me beer without physically having my ID in her hand she would be fired before I got out the door.
I have been saying for a while the world is about to change forever. Most have no clue what is coming.
If it was a state law the mom and pops stores wouldn't be exempted.
Seems like we went through this once with video cams in stores that sell lotto tickets.
Customer tracking has been going on for years normally through store credit cards, Lowes. Home Depot, even grocery chains track customers for customized advertising and offers.
The world changed a long time ago thanks to Equifax, Trans Union etc. You weren't paying attention it seems.
