  • California Governor Brown is preparing to sign into law a new online privacy bill (A.B. 370) approved unanimously (78-0) by the California Assembly on August 26, 2013, having previously passed the California Senate by a vote of 37-0 (with two non-votes recorded). Governor Brown is expected to sign the bill before the expiration of the signing period on October 13, 2013. The new law amends the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) to require two new privacy policy disclosures for websites and online services regarding behavioral tracking.
