AB-375: California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018
If passed, California AB-375 would provide EU-style data protection measures to California residents. It would be the most expansive set of rights to date granted by any state. If the bill does not pass, an even more aggressive ballot proposal could be in the offing.
As stated in the proposed legislation, the “Legislature intends to further expand Californians’ right to privacy by giving consumers an effective way to control their personal information, by ensuring the following rights:
(1) The right of Californians to know what personal information is being collected about them.
(2) The right of Californians to know whether their personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom.
(3) The right of Californians to say no to the sale of personal information.
(4) The right of Californians to access their personal information.
(5) The right of Californians to equal service and price, even if they exercise their privacy rights.”
Much more is included and is a must read for privacy lawyers.
