Is that legal?

On 2/2/2015, I was at mall 7:30 am to have my breakfast at Mac.
Next I checked Superstore to see if there was bargain.
Then I left mall to go to Bonsor before 11 am before the 4 hours limit.

I used the pool there.
As regular, people and lifeguards know me and saw me there.
Then I went home.

About 5 pm, I headed to T&T.
I picked up my dinner there.
My credit card shows I paid the bill at 5:38 pm.

I came home with hot food ready for dinner.
My son told me I have a notice of violation on my car.
It stated as 5:16 pm.

Oh, yes, the package dinner deal starts at 5:30 pm.
And the ticket shows $0 in fine.
I simply no way parked the car over 4 hours in mall.

Next day I went to mall security office to ask why.
The nice gentleman told me.
They processed this way.

Computer scanned me in the morning.
And then they found me again.
That is even at different time and location.

They assume I was in there all day or over 4 hours.
It is a measure to catch people really doing that.
They indeed save money by the short cut.

It is not checking the old way.
That was physically a person did check you twice before ticketing.
Now the right of process is overlooked.

What upset me is.
They will tow the car the next time.
In my case, that is I never park the car that long all day.
