The Virginia House yesterday passed and adopted HB 2426 – Posting certain information on the Internet; prohibitions, in response to growing public concerns about privacy and ID theft. The bill “provides that beginning July 1, 2003, no state agency or court clerk shall post on a state agency or court-controlled website any document that contains the following information: (i) an actual signature; (ii) a social security number; (iii) a date of birth identified with a particular person; (iv) the maiden name of a person’s parent so as to be identified with a particular person; (v) any financial account number or numbers; or (vi) the name and age of any minor child.”
