Principles for Privacy Legislation

Thirty-four civil rights, consumer, and privacy organizations have united to release this set of privacy legislation principles. The privacy principles outline four concepts that any meaningful data protection legislation should incorporate at a minimum:

  1. Privacy protections must be strong, meaningful, and comprehensive.
  2. Data practices must protect civil rights, prevent unlawful discrimination, and advance equal opportunity.
  3. Governments at all levels should play a role in protecting and enforcing privacy rights.
  4. Legislation should provide redress for privacy violations.
