CA Bill To Increase Consumer Access to Data Sold to 3rd Parties

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 8, 2003

SB 27, the “Shine the Light” privacy bill sponsored by California State Senator Liz Figueroa, would, as indicated in the most recently amended version (September 5):

  • “…require a business that discloses a customer’s personal information, including information relating to income or purchases, to a 3rd party for direct marketing purposes to provide the customer, within 30 days after the customer’s request, as specified, in writing or by e-mail the names and addresses of the recipients of that information and specified details regarding the information disclosed, except as specified.”
