Connecticut Joins US Privacy Landscape with New Law
Connecticut became the fifth state to enact a comprehensive privacy law, after Senate Bill 6 for An Act Concerning Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring (‘CTDPA’) was enacted on 10 May, 2022.
The CTDPA, which is due to enter into effect on 1 July 2023, will provide consumers with several data subject rights, such as rights of access, correction, deletion, data portability, and the right to opt-out of targeted advertising, the sale of personal data, and profiling for automated decision-making.
The CTDPA would also provide data controllers with certain obligations, such as providing consumers with a reasonably accessible and clear privacy notice and undertaking data protection assessments for activities that present a heightened risk of harm to consumers, among others.
