First it was Europe, now California has enacted a law requiring that folks be told of what people on line are collecting in the way of information. Means that a number of WordPress plugins are going to get updated, and pretty damn soon.
We just don’t like people knowing stuff about us we rather they didn’t know. We like our privacy, and we don’t like people taking advantage of us based on what we’d rather keep private. Expect more states to enact such privacy laws as California and Europe have done. We may even see a Federal law. And expect certain parties to concoct some interesting interpretations to justify their unlawful use of your data.
California, once more emphasizing her liberality.
…A sweeping California data privacy bill has cleared its first major hurdle in the Legislature.
