Privacy Law and Right of Access
Consumer right of access is a core component of many privacy laws in effect around the world today. Privacy laws in Canada and the EU go back several decades, but changing consumer sentiments around privacy have driven updates to existing laws as well as motivated more countries to enact comprehensive data privacy laws. In the US, several states, including California, are considering or have implemented privacy laws, and the US is considering a federal level law as well. In addition, Brazil, Singapore, and China have all put new privacy regulations into effect that mirror many of the tenants of the EU’s GDPR.
