The licensee, agent, or employee of the licensee shall photocopy all forms of identification presented and retain such photocopies as records under § 121.10. In addition to a valid driver's license or government issued identification card, other acceptable forms of pictured identification shall include, but not be limited to, an employee or student identification card, pictured credit card, or a pictured civic, union or professional association membership card. If the person selling such article to the licensee or placing such article on consignment with the licensee does not present identification issued by a governmental entity, the licensee shall digitally photograph such person in color print and record such person's name, residence address, date of birth, gender, height and weight on the reverse side of the photograph.
