We're all aware that sometimes our image is captured on CCTV as we go about our daily lives, but what you might not realise is that when you enter some of Australia's biggest stores, facial recognition technology is capturing your digital data.

So which shops are currently doing this and why? And can you opt out if you don't want big corporations to have such intimate and private information about you and your family?

The Quicky speaks to an expert in digital privacy to find out what is going on with this data collection, and how concerned (or not) we need to be.
