Cambridge bans facial recognition technology (masslive.com)

Banning for municipal use. I assume that means private companies are still allowed to use facial recognition for anything they want? Is it legal, for example, for departments stores to use security cameras at the entrance to run facial recognition on customers, and then advertise to them online?

Hmm. Can someone alter the title to refer to: Cambridge MA, please?

Otherwise folk will assume it might be the UK one ;)
