Nevada Gets Into the Game

Game. On.

Nevada joins California in enacting its own privacy statute to protect consumer data. The California Consumer Privacy Law, is a broad sweeping regulation that applies to all businesses, regardless of industry, that that collect consumer personal data, do business in California, and meet one or more of the other criteria set forth in the law. The Nevada law by contrast, will apply only to website operators and online service providers, and will only pertain to certain circumstances in the collection of personally identifiable information.

Both laws require an opt out mechanism – either online or a toll-free number, and both are subject to verification. The Nevada law has some exemptions though including entities in the healthcare or financial space regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act or the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.
