Akin Gump published a client alert on the new privacy and personal data acts that were introduced in the House and Senate this month. Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) introduced the Online Privacy Act that would establish individual rights related to the privacy of personal information, privacy and security requirements and establish a new U.S. Digital Privacy Agency to carry out those rights. Sens. John Thune (R-SD), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Jerry Moran (R-KS), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Mark Warner (D-VA) introduced the Filter Bubble Transparency Act. The Act would require platforms to inform users of the use of computer-generated filters to determine how information is delivered. To read the full alert, please click here.
