  • A bill is pending in the New York State Assembly that would require a wide variety of online businesses to obtain consent before sharing consumer personal information with third parties. The bill (A.1324) also would require online businesses to permit consumers to inspect and correct errors in their personal information. The scope of the bill’s provisions is broad and potentially could cover ISPs, mobile data services, cloud computing services, websites and many other types of online providers.
