Nevada Privacy Law Imminent

Global Data Review

25 Sep 2019

Morrison & Foerster partner Julie O’Neill spoke to Global Data Review about the Nevada privacy law that goes into effect on October 1, 2019.

The legislation will allow consumers to opt out from having their data sold by online companies, but only under certain conditions. 

“Even if a company sells an email list to a third party, that wouldn’t be a sale unless the third party also licenses the data itself,” Julie said. “It’s surprising how narrowly crafted this law is – unless you’re in the business of selling data to someone who buys and resells it, [the law] doesn’t apply to you.”
