Restoring Privacy Protections for Californians; Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), June 19, 2017

Kate Tummarello, Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF); Restoring Privacy Protections for Californians

"Californians now have a chance to reclaim crucial online privacy protections.

Earlier this year, Congress narrowly voted to repeal federal privacy rules that kept your ISP from selling information about who you are and what you do online without your permission. Today, California legislators are introducing new state legislation—the California Broadband Internet Privacy Act, A.B. 375 (Chau)— that would effectively reinstate those rules for Internet users in California.

ISPs are our gatekeepers to the Internet, and we shouldn’t have to sacrifice our privacy to these companies just to get online...

With A.B. 375, we have a chance to protect our privacy from ISPs’ privacy violations in California.
Don’t let ISPs put their profits ahead of your privacy. Tell your state representatives to support A.B. 375 (Chau)."
