CSL Plasma Inc. (“CSL Plasma”) has adopted this Biometric Policy to address how it may use biometric equipment (“Equipment”) for identity verification of plasma donors. The Equipment may scan the plasma donor’s finger, hand, face, retina, iris or voice (“Biometric Identifier”) to obtain an encrypted mathematical algorithm or code (“Biometric Information”) which will be used to confirm that plasma donor’s identity. The policy set forth below explains how CSL Plasma and/or its biometric equipment vendors (“Vendors”) may collect, use, store, disclose and destroy this Biometric Information.
(1) The Equipment will scan the plasma donor’s finger (or other Biometric Identifier) to create encrypted Biometric Information;
(2) thereafter, each time the plasma donor uses the Equipment, their finger (or other Biometric Identifier) will be scanned and compared to the Biometric Information created by the initial scan;
(3) Biometric Identifier is not stored by CSL Plasma or its Vendors; and
(4) Biometric Information is collected, used and stored in the Equipment, but it is encrypted and cannot be reverse engineered to return it to its original form.
Biometric Information will be used for identity verification purposes and will be destroyed no later than one (1) year after the date that the plasma donor has ceased to attempt to donate plasma at CSL Plasma for six (6) consecutive months. CSL Plasma and its Vendors will use a reasonable standard of care if they store or transmit Biometric Information, as they do with other confidential information and Biometric Information may be disclosed to and accessible by CSL Plasma and its Vendors only. CSL Plasma and its Vendors will not sell, lease, trade or otherwise profit from plasma donors’ Biometric Information and will not disclose it unless:
- The disclosure completes a financial transaction requested and authorized by the plasma donor or the plasma donor’s legally authorized representative;
- The disclosure is required by state or federal law, or municipal ordinance;
- The disclosure is required pursuant to a valid warrant or subpoena, issued by a court of competent jurisdiction; or
- The plasma donor otherwise consent to the disclosure.
