California Update: What Can Brown Do for You? What You Need to Know About the Two Data Privacy Bills Headed to the Desk of California’s Governor
Two data privacy bills, Assembly Bill 370 and Senate Bill 568 have been sent to California Governor Jerry Brown for signature. As we previously reported, A.B. 370 would require commercial websites or online services that collect personally identifiable information to disclose how that site or service responds to “do not track” signals or similar mechanisms. S.B. 568 would require that the operator of any website or online service remove all content or information submitted to the site or service by a minor at that minor’s request.
Governor Brown is expected to sign both bills. Our Privacy & Security Matters blog will continue to provide updates, including information regarding implementation and compliance deadlines, as they become available.
