Privacy Bill of Rights by Senators Markey and Blumenthal
United States Senators for Massachusetts have introduced Privacy Bill of Rights with aim of protecting the personal information of American consumers.
On the new bill, Senator Markey said, “America deserves a privacy bill of rights that puts consumers, not corporations, in control of their personal, sensitive information. The avalanche of privacy violations by Facebook and other online companies has reached a critical threshold, and we need legislation that makes consent the law of the land. Voluntary standards are not enough; we need rules on the books that all online companies abide by that protect Americans and ensure accountability. I thank Senator Blumenthal for his partnership and look forward to working with my colleagues on a bipartisan basis to pass the long-overdue privacy bill of rights”.
