The American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA) is a federal draft law that aims to protect the privacy of individuals in the United States. The bill was introduced by Democratic Senator Kamala Harris on March 15, 2019 and referred to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation.
The bill would amend the Fair Credit Reporting Act to require large companies to disclose how they collect, use, and share consumer data. It would also require companies to disclose security breaches involving consumer data.
The proposed legislation would give consumers control over their data through a “Do Not Track” list that would allow them to prevent third parties from using their personal information for marketing purposes. The bill also includes provisions related to cybersecurity breaches and data collection by online retailers and other businesses that require opt-in consent from consumers before collecting any personal information.
