With more than 11 billion individual records breached in the U.S. since 2005 and the numerous scandals exposed just last year, companies that collect, use and share our information have given us little reason to trust them. It’s time for Californians to stop feeling helpless when it comes to protecting their information—it’s time we had Privacy for All.
This proposed law (AB 1760) builds upon the California Consumer Privacy Act—closing loopholes by
- requiring a company to get permission before sharing and using personal information
- not exempting companies that share, but don’t sell personal information
- giving Californians the right to know what personal information companies have shared and exactly with whom they have shared it
- allowing Californians to go to court to force companies to follow the law and respect their rights
By giving us real power over our personal information, Privacy for All preserves our right to privacy—a right guaranteed to all Californians by our Constitution. This is why we at Privacy Rights Clearinghouse are proud to be a part of a coalition of diverse organizations sponsoring this important piece of legislation.
