Ban IEMI harvesting

Comment 12th July 2010

Some shopping centres (noteably Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth) as well as national chains of coffee shops routinely gather the IEMI numbers of mobile phones and other similar devices carried by the customers who visit these establishments. At present there is little publicity or scrutiny of the scale of such automated IEMI harvesting or the uses to which the data so gathered is put.

Why does this matter?

This covert form of surveillance should be stamped-out before it becomes pervasive.
