Georgia-Based Delta Airlines Reportedly Giving Passengers’ Personal Information to the Chinese Government

 

According to Delta Airlines’ privacy policy, the Chinese communist government collects personal information of passengers who use the airline to travel to China.

This, according to a new article in The Federalist.

“Your personal data will be collected and processed in accordance with Cybersecurity Law of China that became effective in June 2017 … and any other laws and regulations of China that govern this area,” the policy reads.

“Any processing of personal data that we perform is in accordance with the provisions of the privacy laws in China, and this data may only be used for the limited purposes discussed in this section. ”

The agreement, The Federalist went on to report, also details certain passenger information that Chinese government authorities require, including birthday, sex, “postal address, address while staying in the United States, and email address,” and “biometric information (such as finger, face, voice, or iris).”

The Georgia Star News’ attempts to contact Delta Airlines’ communications staff on Monday were unsuccessful.

The Federalist reported that Delta Airlines cooperating with China’s communist government “presents serious national security concerns for the United States” as Chinese officials are building a global database of individuals’ biometrics.

Earlier this year, an anonymous company employee with two decades of experience who is reportedly angry complained about Delta Airlines CEO Ed Bastian and the company’s Woke culture.

The anonymous author sent the letter to political commentator Karlyn Borysenko, who posted about it on her YouTube channel. Journalist Kyle Becker also published the letter on his website. They reported the letter is now in wide circulation.

The author said he or she was writing anonymously for fear of retaliation.

Earlier this year Delta Airlines officials criticized Georgia’s new voter integrity law, Senate Bill 202. This new voter reform law requires, among other things, voter ID on all absentee ballots and secured drop boxes around the clock.

Members of the Georgia House of Representatives in April struck back at Delta Airlines and decided not to renew a jet fuel tax credit that they bestow upon the company. The vote, however, was merely symbolic. Delta still has the tax credit. That’s because members of the Georgia State Senate did not have an opportunity to vote on the matter for this year’s legislative session before it ended.
