New York Online Privacy Protection Act
New York has recently enacted two laws expanding its breach notification and security safeguards requirements, and it may be poised to pass a third bill, aimed at increasing the privacy rights of New York residents. On July 25, 2019, New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed into law the Stop Hacks and Improve Electronic Data Security Act (“SHIELD”) and Identity Theft Protection and Mitigation Services Act. Together, these bills expand the type of personal information covered by New York’s data breach reporting law, require business to implement specific data security safeguards, and demand that any business regulated as a credit reporting agency (“CRA”) provide identity theft prevention and mitigation services to affected consumers for five years – a new high water mark for such requirements.
Expanded definition of “private information”
The SHIELD Act expands “private information” in line with the laws of several other states to include (i) biometric information, (ii) financial account numbers that can be used alone to access an account, and (iii) usernames or email address in combination with a password or security question and answer.
Notification for incidents involving unauthorized access
Under the original law, notification was required only if there was “unauthorized acquisition” of private information. The SHIELD Act requires notification even where there was “unauthorized access” but no acquisition of private information, such as where there are “indications that the information was viewed, communicated with, used, or altered by a person without valid authorization or by an unauthorized person.”
As do the laws of most other states, the SHIELD Act provides for exceptions to its notification and reasonable security requirements, including for those businesses already regulated by and in adherence with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). Companies covered by HIPAA or GLBA, however, are still required to provide notice to the New York Attorney General, Department of State, and the Division of State Police in the event of a data breach.
How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?
We honor Do Not Track signals and Do Not Track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.
Does our site allow third-party behavioral tracking?
It’s also important to note that we do not allow third-party behavioral tracking COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act.) When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.
Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?
Fair Information Practices
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
IN ORDER TO BE IN LINE WITH FAIR INFORMATION PRACTICES WE WILL TAKE THE FOLLOWING RESPONSIVE ACTION, SHOULD A DATA BREACH OCCUR:
We will notify you via email within 7 business days. We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
