If it’s not broker(ed) why fix it?
A new data broker bill has been submitted to the Washington State House of Representatives, following in the footsteps of Vermont and California.
Per the bill, a broker will be required to register in a central registry and indicate:
- Name and address
- If it permits an opt out of collection or sharing of personal information:
- The method for requesting an opt-out
- To which activities or sales the opt-out applies
- Whether the consumer may authorize a third party to opt out on its behalf
- List of what cannot be opted out of
- Whether the data broker implements a purchaser credentialing process
- A separate statement detailing the data collection practices, databases, sales activities, and opt out policies that are applicable to the personal information of minors (if applicable)
- Any additional information that the data broker chooses to provide concerning its data collection practices
