New California Disclosure Requirement For Websites And Online Services
There is a new Internet privacy bill which is pending the approval of Governor Jerry Brown after having passed in both houses of the California legislative body. The new law will put additional privacy safeguards for California residents who use commercial websites and online services.
After becoming law, every business that operates a website that collects personal information classified as “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII) from its customers, will be affected. “Personally Identifiable Information” includes: (1) Name (2) Physical address, including street, city or town name; (3) email address; (4) Social security number; (5) Telephone numbers and (6) any other information that permits a physical or online contact with a certain individual.
