App Providers Should Review Calif.'s Online Privacy Law

Law360, New York (October 25, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT) -- Mobile application providers may want to review compliance with California’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“OPPA”).[1] OPPA went into effect in July 2004, and was reportedly the first state Internet user privacy law. Specifically, OPPA requires a person or company operating a website or online service that collects personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy. This law applies to out-of-state entities, so long as they are collecting covered data from California residents. There is no statutory right to damages under OPPA and the law has seen very little activity since it went into effect.
