Target scanned my wife's license for a pack of 5 BIC lighters when they only wanted to 'see' the license. I work in the Cyber Security / Information Assurance field and know that Target are not immune from malicious hackers, me not being one of them.
Target scanning Personal Identifiable Information (PII)is totally unnecessary; from my research, only 'novelty' lighters are age restricted. My complaint to Target has now managed to get past 'Guest Relations' and has been escalated to Targets Executive Offices.
My request is simple - if it is not a legal requirement to scan for this item then I want my PII information removed from Targets database and proof thereof. If anyone can assist me in this endeavour I would greatly appreciate the assistance.
