Contact tracing privacy concerns

Samantha Gee Reporter from The Nelson Mail

A Nelson man's rant at Animates about contract tracing requirements at retail stores has attracted attention on social media.
Retailers are not required to contact trace if customers can maintain two metre social distancing while in store, but there is nothing to stop other retailers contact tracing if they think it is important for health and safety.
It is not breach of privacy to ask for customer details on entry to a store. However, retailers need to be clear about the purpose of collecting that information, keep it secure and only use it for the purpose it was gathered for.

What do you think about retail stores asking for contact details upon entry?
