Prepare for litigation under privacy laws that protect the use of individuals’ biometric information. Review some of the claims—and resulting settlements—that have been brought under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), including those against Facebook and Tik-Tok. Consider New York City’s newly enacted Biometric Identifier Information Law, which bans the sale of biometric data and imposes notice requirements on certain businesses that use biometric technology. Evaluate how laws like BIPA apply—where violation, not injury creates a claim—and why many insurance claims have resulted in coverage denial. Examine how general liability, employment practices, directors and officers and cyber policies can cover the invasion of privacy issue involved, but be wary of the potential for exclusions during coverage renewal.
