21 September 2020 15:30 GMT

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Field Operations successfully launched their biometrics entry/exit website.

The purpose of the site is to deliver information to the public and other stakeholder groups. The site provides a user-friendly communication channel for promoting facial comparison technology and biometrics information in a dynamic and inviting manner.

As a testament to CBP’s commitment to privacy protections, outlined in the DHS Fair Information Practice Principles, the website includes the current locations using facial comparison technology as well as information on how to request alternative screening and copies of CBP’s privacy signage on display. 

The information provided, including a link to CBP’s Traveler Verification Service Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA), is yet another tool in CBP’s arsenal to ensure technology sustains and does not erode privacy protections.

"CBP is committed to improving its public messaging and helping the public better understand the technology", said the government body.
