Microsoft on Monday (November 11), revealed that it plans to imply California’s digital privacy law throughout the US. This move in return will expand the horizons of the law, while also giving consumers increased control over how companies collect and manage their personal data.
In blog post Microsoft revealed that it’s a strong advocate of the California Consumer Privacy Act, which will start on Jan. 1. The Privacy Act was passed in June 2018, aiming to provide protection to Californian residents in the absence of federal law.
“CCPA marks an important step toward providing people with more robust control over their data in the United States,” Julie Brill, Microsoft’s chief privacy officer, wrote in the post. “It also shows that we can make progress to strengthen privacy protections in this country at the state level even when Congress can’t or won’t act.”
The CCPA is responsible for developing a rigorous data privacy protection law in the nation. It allows the general public to request that the data collected on them be deleted. It also allows them the choice to opt out of having their information sold to a third party.
