Strengthen Online Privacy for Maryland Families
Kids in Maryland are tracked and targeted by tech companies looking to make a profit from them. Their locations, voices, faces, personal data, online behavior, and personal information are up for sale, putting them at risk of being exploited or exposed.
A recent poll by Common Sense and SurveyMonkey found that families want real protections for their online privacy. Maryland lawmakers have a chance to do just that.
The Online Consumer Protection Act of 2019 (SB 0613), introduced by Senator Susan Lee, is a great step in letting people control their information and privacy online.
Maryland's Online Consumer Protection Act will:
- Require many companies to report what information they collect about you.
- Force those companies to delete your data if you ask.
- Allow you to block them from selling your information to a third party.
- If they know you're under 18, never sell that data.
- Our kids love tech, and we want it to uplift them. That is why we are demanding kids and families be able to go online and feel secure in their safety and privacy. Senator Lee's bill will help us get there.
Please add your voice to support SB 0613 and help protect Maryland kids.
