You can't store image of people withour their consent. The usage can be in a school to automate attendance record for the teacher in a classroom for exemple. But in this case, parents have to consent (at least in Belgium).
If you want to know more about it, I advise you to check with your country law, it can depend.

I believe they actually can.

What you're saying is they should not or are not legally allowed. That's different. When the government itself is the offender, it's kinda difficult to think citizens can rely on... err... the Government to enforce correction.

But if developers won't implement it, politicians and bureaucrats can't wreak havoc a nation's privacy.
