Re: Opt out ?

"Individuals in these countries can opt-out."

Oh. And what if the individual is unaware that their likeness has been scraped?

I have no "social media" presence so have not uploaded any photos of myself or others. But other people I may or may not know might. So my photo may be available to the like of Clearview but how am I to exercise my right to "opt-out" if I don't know about the photo?

This is just a fig-leaf to cover what is likely to be activity falling foul of the GDPR in the hopes that everyone will forget about it and allow Clearview to pursue its obviously lucrative but very dodgy practices
