Biometric Recognition

The Academy uses a fingertip recognition software to identify individual users to allow payment for food.  We scan two fingers of the students, these images are then converted to a mathematical algorithm, a series of numbers, which can be used to identify the user.  The scanned image is then discarded.  Parents permission is obtained for this process on completion of the Student Information sheet which takes place on enrolment and every September thereafter.
