Biometric Data Attorneys

Understanding Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA)

Levin Law understands the importance of protecting your biometric data from breaches or misuse. Your privacy is of the utmost importance and you should never have to worry about who has your biometric data. 

The Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) is one of the most stringent laws in the country regarding the collection, use, storage, and disposal of biometric identifiers and we have years of experience enforcing these regulations. Do you have a BIPA-related question? Call Levin Law today at (305) 402-9050 to talk to an attorney. 

What is Biometric Information?

BIPA defines biometric identifiers as unique biological characteristics that can be used to identify an individual. These are often obtained by electronic devices such as your smartphone or laptop but can also be retrieved by other technology with or without your knowledge. This includes:

  • Fingerprints
  • Facial recognition
  • Iris scans
  • Retinal scans
  • Voice prints
  • Hand geometry
  • DNA

What Does BIPA Do?

BIPA regulates how private companies collect, use, store, and dispose of biometric data in Illinois. Here are some key aspects of the law to keep in mind:

  • Written Consent Requirement: Before collecting biometric information from an individual, a private entity must obtain a written release form explaining how the data will be used, stored, and for how long.
  • Retention Schedule and Disposal: Companies must have a written policy outlining a data retention schedule and a clear process for permanently destroying biometric information after it is no longer needed.
  • Private Right of Action: Individuals whose biometric data is violated under BIPA have the right to sue for both financial and emotional damages.

How Can Levin Law Help?

If you believe a company in Illinois has violated your rights under BIPA, Levin Law can help. Our experienced attorneys can:

  • Review your case: We will carefully analyze the situation and determine if you have a potential BIPA claim or if a different strategy would be better moving forward. 
  • Investigate the violation: We will gather evidence of the potential breach and build a strong case on your behalf. While collecting evidence can be difficult if you are working without an attorney, we have the experience and connections to find what they are trying to hide. 
  • Negotiate a settlement: Settlement negotiations can be intimidating if you have not gone toe-to-toe with major corporations’ legal representation before. Lucky for you, we have. Our team will work tirelessly to obtain the maximum compensation you deserve.
  • Litigate your case: If necessary, we will take your case to court to protect your rights.
