The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) signed in to law in 1993 was designed to help lessen the unregulated telemarketing call and faxes. Without consumer consent, companies must not contact people who have asked to be on the do not call registry or face the possibility of litigation.
COPPA takes on the privacy and protection of children under 13, making it mandatory that parental consent is given before collection of certain types of information. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) gives strict guidelines that online services must follow to protect children.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)is a new Act that will be effective in 2020. California residents will now be able to find out what personal information is being gathered about them, have access to it, know what information is shared and with whom and if their information is sold they now have the right to opt out of that sale. Also, excising their privacy rights will not exclude them from receiving equal service and price.
