People’s Privacy Act

This bill creates meaningful, people-centric digital privacy protections for Washingtonians. It gives individuals the right to know what personal information companies and organizations are collecting and puts people in control of whether and how their information is used. It prohibits secret surveillance, installing and using face recognition systems in places of public accommodation, unauthorized sale or use of personal data, and use of data to discriminate. Importantly, it allows people to enforce any violations through the courts. Washington is a technology leader and should be setting a meaningful standard for privacy protections. This bill sets that gold standard and puts Washingtonians in control of their data.
