11. Not the same as GPS, which someone else implied.
And tracking individuals is not the purpose of the card. It's to ensure services are rendered in order to qualify for government grants -- in exactly the same way that attendance is taken in schools to verify student numbers for federal education funds.

If the card contained a GPS tracking device (like your cell phone does, BTW), that would be an entirely different circumstance.
