12 Sep Internet Association Expresses Support for National Data Privacy Approach
A group that represents companies such as Netflix, Microsoft, and Twitter, recently expressed its support for the modernization of US data privacy rules that it hopes to preempt California’s new privacy law.
The Internet Association says that it would like a national privacy law backed with principles that would give consumers “meaningful controls” over the personal information that they provide. Users should also be given reasonable access to their data, as well as the ability to delete it whenever they want.
IA’s CEO Michael Beckerman says that they will actively work with the administration and Congress on the new rules which they would want to put in place before the California law takes effect in 2020.
