The New York CCPA?

UPDATE

A680 – New York Privacy Act (Assembly Version):  bill was amended and recommitted to he Committee for Consumer Affairs and Protection

S6701 – New York Privacy Act (Senate Version):  passed by the Senate Consumer Protection Committee; third reading in Senate 5/24/21

Like many other states in 2021, the bills are running out of time.  The New York State Legislature adjourns June 10.

****************

Proposed NY Senate Bill S567 would provide New York residents with protections very similar to California’s CCPA.  Some highlights:

  • includes a broader private right of action than CCPA
  • allows for anyone who becomes aware of certain violations (based on non-public information) to file civil action for civil penalties
  • this would allow actions to be brought by competitors, vendors and consumers – not just a claimant whose data has been mishandled under proposed law
  • The NY Attorney General’s office would be responsible for enforcement

 

Also, NY Assembly Bill A27 was introduced on January 6, 2021 and would establish the Biometric Privacy Act addressing the retention, collection, disclosure and destruction of biometric identifiers and information.

****************

The New York State Senate has two consumer data privacy bills currently with the Consumer Protection Committee:

Senate Bill S224 – “The Right to Know Act”

Senate Bill S5642 – “The New York Privacy Act”
