Guidance on asking for ID in credit card transactions

The Information and Privacy Commissioners of Alberta and British Columbia, along with the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, have released a guidance document on requiring photo ID of individuals paying for goods and services by credit card. All three have concluded it is reasonable.

See the OIPC website and the guidance document: Photo Identification Guidance.

I think it is only right that they should be more careful with card transactions. This is to prevent credit card frauds. Sounds reasonable enough.
