In the high-rise apartment complex, where I am a long-term owner/occupier in Sydney, building management wishes to install Biometric/ Fingerprint security controls, primarily to help reduce overcrowding.
Are there privacy/ownership of personal information laws or regulations that prevent fingerprinting being enforced? I have never been fingerprinted in my life and do not wish to have my prints obtained by some private company.
Also, surely there is an associated biohazard risk? Colds, influenza, hepatitis, skin conditions could surely be passed on from these readers if they are not constantly maintained? Especially, as to access the apartments a resident would have to provide fingerprints 3 times (Front door, lobby and inside elevator)? I press the elevator buttons with my keys as I worry about this.
Should building management, at the very least provide disinfectant wipes, at each reader?
Also, is building management be required to provide alternative access in case of malfunction, refusal to be fingerprinted, access for tradesman etc?
I would like to hear the thoughts and opinions of the forum on this matter
