The Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act bars the companies from biometric scanning of their bodies without their explicit permission. A woman in March 2016 filed a case alleging that Google scanned her photos in order to create a template of her face without her permission. It was alleged that the facial recognition technique violated the privacy of the users. Judge Edmond Chang, district judge, granted a motion dismissing the suit that the court lacked "subject matter jurisdiction because plaintiffs have not suffered concrete injuries." Google is the only company to get away with the allegations of the Act that is recognized as one of the strictest privacy laws out of other companies like Facebook and snap chat. The plaintiffs have demanded a whopping amount of $5000 for each intentional violation and $1000 for each negligent violation of privacy laws. Google contended that the parties did not suffer actual harm.
