Data privacy is back in Congressional lawmakers’ sights, as proposed legislation called the ACCESS Act focuses not on data collection, storage, and selling, but on the idea that Americans should be able to easily pack up their data and take it to a competing service. But will this actually protect privacy?
Should this proposed privacy law come into effect, if a company violates that law, you, your neighbor, and your family do not have the right to sue them.
The United States might be the only country of its size to lack a comprehensive data privacy law protecting its citizens’ online lives. That could change this year.
