Much like your credit report, where you can look and check who has been accessing and using your credit information and make corrections, so should be the case with the rest of your personal information – says, Sen. Reuven Carlyle, D-Seattle, the sponsor of Senate Bill 5376, passed by the Senate of Washington state.

The privacy bill, taking pages from the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), would require companies to disclose what information they are collecting and to give individuals the ability to access, correct and sometimes delete it.

It also would require an individual’s consent for the use of facial recognition in order to profile people in places open to the public — such as retail stores.

The bill, which passed the Senate by a vote of 46-1, now goes to the state’s House of Representatives for consideration.
