Transparency Around “Do Not Track”: Best Practices Regarding California’s Privacy Amendments and Related Legislative Developments
Wednesday, January 29, 2014
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM ET
Effective January 1, 2014, new requirements went into effect under California law necessitating that websites, mobile applications, and online services post privacy policies for consumers. Under the recent amendments, online services must disclose how they respond to web browsers’ “do not track” signals. In the absence of a web standard for responding to such signals, privacy professionals need to know what this means and how it may affect online services.
The faculty will discuss how members of the online ecosystem have responded to the new requirements thus far and consider the California Attorney General’s enforcement priorities on this issue for 2014. In addition, we will describe other new legislative developments, including amendments to the California Online Privacy Protection Act, that are slated to become effective in 2015.
