Let's Talk About Privacy
In today’s hyperconnected world, privacy concerns are paramount. The sensitive information we share online can impact everything from healthcare to personal finances. Americans deserve one national law that protects our privacy. Only Congress can make that happen.
Congress must act to establish one national law that protects privacy for all Americans
Our private data is increasingly used to serve many purposes. Quite often, it’s for good in supporting new services and promoting convenience, but sometimes it’s for ill when bad actors use data in ways that violate consumer trust.
While we may choose to share private information willingly, we often lack a complete picture of how our data will be used or even who has access to such data.
In America, privacy requirements can change across state lines and apply inconsistently to some data collectors but not others. That system is confusing and unfair.
Privacy standards should be the same no matter who collects our private data or where we live. America needs one approach that protects the sensitive information we share online.
To protect our privacy, policymakers need to hear from you.

50 separate state laws won’t work. America needs one law that applies to the entire nation.
Americans should be empowered with simple ways to control who can access our personal data and how they use it.
Organizations that retain consumer data need to take reasonable steps to protect that data from illegal access.

What Peers and Policymakers are Saying
“Indeed, the interconnected nature of the internet almost demands a consistent set of privacy protections. Consumers’ privacy rights shouldn’t change depending on which internet service provider they use to log on, what websites they visit, or what social networks or search engines they use.”
