Not for a coffee, not for lunch at the local Japanese restaurant and not to go to your local pub.
You are a free living man or woman with inalienable rights.
Now, if someone asks you to sign-in at a shop or café or wherever, by scanning a QR code then filling in online forms to send your personal information to who-knows-whom you have a choice:
Say no, or say no and show them this 'Facebook sized' photo 'Business Owner Need To Know'.
Download the picture above which has a QR code of its own and politely explain your rights.
This QR code takes anyone who scans it to a website clearly explaining the law in Australia (which is also copied below). Basically it is an OFFENCE to discriminate against someone who chooses not to check in with their mobile device; an offence punishable by up to 5 years in jail and 300 'penalty units'.
No one can force you to check in with your phone.
More of our basic rights are explained further on the flyer which inspired this handy image. It's got heaps more helpful information for understanding, and living by, your rights. You can download that below. Big thanks to the team behind creating it and for freely sharing it online.
