This sheet is periodically updated when new bills are proposed, when bills die and when bills are passed into law.
Just so you understand a bit more about the proposed laws, Our friends over at Termaggeddon have summed up the privacy law beautifully as seen below! Here is an explanation of the factors for each bill:
- Business size limit: this bill applies to businesses of a certain size. For example, some of the bills apply to businesses that make millions of dollars in revenue or collect the personal information of a certain number of that state’s citizens;
- Right to access data: consumers have the right to see the specific pieces of data that the company has collected about them;
- Right to delete data: consumers have the right to request that the business delete their personal data;
- Right to correct data: consumers have the right to request that the business correct their incorrect data or complete their incomplete data;
- Right to restrict processing: consumers have the right to limit how businesses use their data.
- Right to opt out: consumers have the right to say no to the sharing or selling of their data.
- Opt-in consent required: consumers have to affirmatively allow the business to collect, use, sell or share their data.
- Right to portability: consumers have the right to receive their personal data that the business has collected on them in an electronic, commonly-used, machine structured format.
- Against automated decision making: the bill restricts a businesses’ ability to make certain decisions by solely automated means, without any human involvement.
- Imposes fiduciary duty: the bill obligates a business to act solely in the best interest of the consumer and not the business when it comes to that consumer’s data.
- Prohibits discrimination: the bill prohibits businesses from discriminating against consumers that exercise their rights by charging higher prices or by providing inferior quality service or products.
Since the proposed bills are always changing, make sure to check back frequently to keep up to date!
