Blind Item #2

The largest amusement park corporations in the country collect different bio-metric information from their patrons. One takes pictures (A) while another takes fingerprints (B) and another measures your body (C). Two are given willingly by the general public. This information is then sold to various companies, some of which are fronts for not only governments in this country, but also around the world.

Six Flags? or Disney?

If I had to provide fingerprints to get into a fucking amusement park, I would turn around and go home. The astronomical ticket prices should be enough.

Disney

I know most take your photo at the end of certain rides to try to sell it back to you. I would cover my face just to be difficult.

Troy Dyer said...

if you just buy one day tickets then you won’t need a fingerprint

Nazi = Walt Disney....they can't help themselves.

1) Collects body measurements.
2) Collects your blood and type.
3) Collects your plasma.
4) Gives you an option to donate.
5) Collects your DNA.

Someone is looking for a perfect match.

A few years ago I went to a Voo Doo fest in New Orleans without going in. I took a bunch of teenagers to hear Ozzy instead of playing video games. The event was outdoors and I knew an oak grove where we could hang outside the stadium and hear the whole thing. There was no was to get to the park without passing this huge spotlight thing, and you could tell it looked right through you. In later years they started using these same huge lights on Bourbon St. during big events, Mardi Gras etc. Chilling.

Not sure what parks are asking for fingerprints, but I'd be more concerned with how many people pay to offer up their DNA to companies like Ancestry and 23&Me. Just 'cause they say it's confidential doesn't mean anything. Google, Facebook, Android, Apple and everyone else says the same thing and don't mean it.

Why do they do it? What do they do with it?

Those season pass things - that they also charge you money for?

What a racket.

Disney need your fingerprint and magic band to get into their parks. Magic bands are your tickets, room keys and ride times etc... Magic bands are basically a tracking system for Disney to know who you are and where you are.

Bravo to the People of Hong Kong for pulling down a facial recognition camera. They don't want to be a part of the Social Credit system already being used to destroy lives in China. It's a shame we cannot help those people, being the willing slaves to China we are. Leftists here cannot wait to enact social credits. Who gets medical care? Who gets to collect their SS? You better be good.

I wouldn't be surprised if Vail Corporation did this. They would have your weight and height too from your ski rentals. And you have to sign your name to the contract. Plus your Epic pass, or Ikon, or Mountain collective, for other resort companies would have the same, have RFID for going thru gates. The richest people in NA, and Australia, ski at those resorts.

"Disney World collects your fingerprint data. Who has access to that?"
Kristen Johansen
May 22nd, 2018

Each year, Disney World gets millions of visitors, and the theme park has collected fingerprints from many of them. But what do they do with this abundance of data?

As part of a new admissions system, Disney theme parks collect fingerprint data from visitors who have tickets — more than 55,000 prints a day.

Through the Ticket Tag system, it links your fingerprint to an admission bracelet that gets you into the park. Disney said each fingerprint is transformed into a unique numerical value — and that they don't store the data.

"For Disney to say they are not storing the actual fingerprints, they are," countered Former FBI agent J.J. Klaver. "They are storing the digital representation of that fingerprint."

Klaver said all prints are reduced to a series of digital numbers, which "is how fingerprints are categorized and catalogued and then searched."

A spokesman for Disney said they hold onto the information for as long as the ticket is valid, but Klaver said it's concerning they are collecting personal data at all.

"Law enforcement could go to Disney with a subpoena or court order to obtain any information that they have, and that could include fingerprint information," he added.

A spokesman for Disney said the newer system was put in place to combat fraud, but if visitors don't want to use a print, they can use a photo ID instead.

"That is just one more piece of personal data that a private company is asking us to give up," Klaver continued.

gotta find bombs somehow. the terrorists in San Diego scoped out Disneyland and its their way of detecting it. if you dont like it, don't go. I'm all for it. lift my hands up to the sky and take the pictures.

Just hang a note saying- Anyone who doesnt agree to give their biometrics is RACIST! No one will utter a peep!

When Trumpf is finished with this controlled demolition of government and the libtards roll in as saviors, everyone will run to Daddy in thanks for these new protections from inconvenience. You have to invite the devil in but once he's there, you're his bitch.

James Howlett said...

If you think that's bad, the lead of the deepmind project just lost his job when they discovered stolen medical files. Google is throwing money at being able to diagnose diseases with technology. Yeah. It sounds crazy, but it's really going on. Remember when 23 and me said they could check your DNA for any disease you may be susceptible to? Follow the trail. Google and 23andme are husband and wife

Disney links your "fingerprint" to your data on the card. It's a biometric system. However, they don't actually have your fingerprint - it turns it into an algorithm. We have the same system at work - if the number from your fingerprint matches your swipe card, you are swiped in at work. Prevents people from swiping other employees in and out. We don't collect fingerprints.

Samantha the 1st said...

roadrunner who is 'we?'

How do you know where the info winds up?

R. J. Anderson said...

Miss Substance D needs a Daddy badly.

Do Tell said...

I could kind of understand it if it was a system meant to keep previous offenders out of a park.

I'm not too worried about the DNA kits, I got one for my Mom for Mother's Day at her request. That's also because my ID has been compromised so often already, simply by having a Social Security Number, by paying taxes to the IRS, by having served in the military, by having health insurance through Aetna and previously through Blue Cross, ALL of which are organizations that have had massive, massive security breaches involving SSNs and personal info, that I am numb to it at this point. I just take the precautions I can take. If your identity has not been compromised or stolen yet, it will be.

What about that fraud Theranos with Kissinger and Schultz on the board? That chick Elizabeth Holmes still isn't in jail. What were they really collecting?

MissBitch said...

@ HushHush, I have an Ikon pass, and have been buying it (or some version of it) for many years. I don't rent (most regular skiers have their own gear) so they don't have any biological data on me, but they know when I am on the mountain and what I eat, since I scan my pass for a discount. It's about the same data the supermarket collects on my when I use my rewards card. It's nothing like having my fingerprint. That's just evil.

canroadrunner said...

Samantha the 1st. "we" is the manufacturing Company I work for. The fingerprint itself is not in our "closed" system. The algorithm is formed from the print and the number is matched to the swipe card. We cannot reconstruct the fingerprint as a fingerprint and it only collects the mathematical data, not the actual print.

HushHush said...

@MissBitch Thanks for the update. Vail has been one of the least liked companies, and with all the info they have, and their connections to both political parties, it wouldn't surprise me if they shared their data with government. With RFID they have lifties with ipads that flash the users id pass picture so they know it's that person. Whistler (now a Vail corp) used to pay $500 to a liftie if they caught a skier using someone else's pass (they stopped paying the liftie, but it's still a $500 fine). Facial recognition will be coming in soon, if not now. The RFID gate system doesn't work very well. Facial recognition is scary, like a social credit system. Imagine getting flagged a problem customer, like on the airlines.

roadrunner - thank you for your reply.

I'm sure the end user don't have access to it - but the blind seems to say all of that is kept by the ones in charge up on high. Shipped out, sold, traded, who knows...and for why?

I hate Disney and what it stands for.

They collect fingerprints at my son's school. They get the kids fingerprint for their lunch account. Parents also have to give a fingertip scan when you pick your child up early.

I know of Disney and Six Flags, but I can't think of the other amusement corporation. Dollywood?

And yet, nobody has to show any sort of ID to vote. Think about it.

amused formerly disgusted said...

We should all pick up two items for these kinds of places
- an NPC mask and gloves.

Samantha the 1st said...

Sounds like a good idea for schools/security but IDK about the selling the info part.

Remember seeing that Arnie movie (Total Recall), long ago, when they scan people who are traveling, and thinking "now that they've thought of it...how long will it be before they do it?" And here we all are being scanned when we fly.

And when we're outside, with facial recognition cameras on the street. And when we go to theme parks, I guess, now, too. And who knows what else.

I know some places where children go have astringent security. Never a fingerprint but could see asking.
