Download faces privacy backlash

The organisers of the Download Festival are facing a backlash from fans who complained that the much vaunted and compulsory cashless payments system (which failed on the opening day) could be used to track them around the site, that personal details the system gathered  were being released to 'targeted marketing companies' and that festivals goer's faces were being scanned by "strategically placed cameras"at the Download festival site in Donington by the Leicstershire Police "before comparing [them] with a database of custody images from across Europe”.
