Proposed retail uses of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags have generated privacy concerns, which, in turn, have spurred legislative proposals to limit their use in six states. Such concerns center around uses of RFID tags where an individual does not know that he or she has been associated with the tag or who may be reading the data gathered and for what purpose.
