Thanks for subscribing to Osano's Privacy Insider! Between lawsuits, coronavirus, and newly proposed laws it's been a busy week.
Every week, I'll sends you, the insiders, the information you need to know from the world of data privacy.
Here are the top stories from last week that you might have missed:
New York Adopts New Data Security And Privacy Regulations For Schools And Their Vendors - New York State regulators are taking action to protect personal information that schools and their vendors collect and maintain.
A New Senate Bill Would Create A US Data Protection Agency - Europe’s data protection laws are some of the strictest in the world, and have long been a thorn in the side of the data-guzzling Silicon Valley tech giants since they colonized vast swathes of the internet. Two decades later, one Democratic senator wants to bring many of those concepts to the United States.
Google Users in UK to Lose EU Data Protection - Google is planning to move its British users’ accounts out of the control of European Union privacy regulators, placing them under U.S. jurisdiction instead.
Google Gobbling FitBit is a Major Privacy Risk, Warns EU Data Protection Advisor - The European Data Protection Board (EDPB) has intervened to raise concerns about Google’s plan to scoop up the health and activity data of millions of Fitbit users — at a time when the company is under intense scrutiny over how extensively it tracks people online and for antitrust concerns.
Iowa Senate Proposes "Right To Be Forgotten" Bill - Under a bill proposed by Iowa Sen. Zach Nunn, R-Altoona, known as the Right to be Forgotten Act, state residents could request certain content be removed from the internet. Internet operators would have 30 days to remove requested content deemed “of minimal value” that may cause “demonstrable harm” to an individual’s profession, finances or reputation.
Tennessee Department Sells Data of 7.2M Drivers - In Tennessee, the Department of Safety and Homeland Security -which oversees driver's licenses, sells your information to four companies, generating nearly $1 million in revenue. The sale of personal information is legal under the Federal Driver Privacy Protection Act of 1994 and the Tennessee Uniform Motor Vehicle Records Disclosure Act.
Washington Privacy Act Clears State Senate - The Washington State Senate has passed a privacy bill that would give state residents new rights over data collection and use, including the right to opt out of targeted advertising. The Washington Privacy Act, which cleared the Senate 46-1 late Friday, now moves to the House where its future is uncertain.
