Is it legal for security guard on parking lot to ask and write down my name? Name is a PII and can be used to identify and track the person. Especially when linked with other information (vehicle plate number, name of child's school, etc.) My child goes to gym and today security guard on parking lot start asking name of every driver who entering the parking lot. he say this is what landlord told them to do. I'm not dealing with landlord directly but I'm a customer of company who renting this gym. Of course company who renting this gym knows their customers but do not have authorization to share private information with anyone. As far as I know there are some regulations how PII can be collected and stored. I suspect they violating my rights, they do not have a reason to collect names and write them down. My name is not a big secret I think it is inappropriate to share it with every security guard on every parking lot. What do you think? By the way security guard was in uniform but did not introduce himself before asked my name.
