Tell Co-op to stop using facial recognition technology in their supermarkets.

Co-op supermarkets have been secretly using live facial recognition cameras in 35 stores across the south of England — and they have no intention to stop. To our knowledge, this is the first supermarket in the UK to permanently install facial recognition.

Let's make it the last. This is a watershed moment for retail surveillance. It's vital we stop Co-op spying now, before other stores follow suit.

UPDATE: We've submitted a detailed legal complaint to the data rights watchdog, the Information Commissioner, about Co-op's use of live facial recognition. We believe their use of this invasive technology is unlawful - so we're calling on the Commissioner to investigate and stop this Orwellian surveillance of innocent shoppers. Read our legal complaint here.

Will you STOP spying on customers with live facial recognition cameras @TheSouthernCoop?

I will no longer shop at Co-op supermarkets if you continue to use this rights-abusive surveillance tech.
