"Hungry students at a school in Västerbotten in northern Sweden must give a fingerprint in order to eat in the schools cafeteria,
a practice which bothers data privacy officials seeking to ban the measure.
At the Lilja school in Vännäs, students must give a fingerprint accompanied by a four-digit code in order to receive a plate and enter the school's cafeteria.
The system helps the school prevent unauthorized people from eating in the canteen, and also helps officials plan food purchases and the monthly budget."
Is the privacy mailing list gone forever, BTW?
