California To Require Do-Not-Track Disclosures
PRIVACY LAW—U.S.September 4, 2013
The California Senate and Assembly passed an amendment to the California Online Privacy Protection Act, which the governor is expected to sign, that will require commercial websites and services that collect personal data to disclose how they respond to Do-Not-Track signals, AdWeek reports. California Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-66th District) introduced the bill, which was also sponsored by Attorney General Kamala Harris—who’s been pushing for privacy protections and consumer privacy enforcement actions. The bill does not prohibit tracking but “does require websites to choose sides to either honor or ignore Do-Not-Track browser signals,” the report states.
