We Need a Clear & Consistent National Privacy Law
Americans need certainty for our online data, so that no matter where you are, your private information should remain private. In the absence of a national law, states across the country have introduced their own legislation, including Virginia where legislation was recently enacted.
This is a problem for consumers for many reasons, least of which is that the internet doesn’t recognize state boundaries, so the protections being established are inconsistent and ineffective at best.
To improve privacy we need a national privacy law that empowers Americans to learn how personal data is being collected and used.
