Colorado attorney general seeks input on rules for companies that collect personal information

Colorado Newsline: The Colorado attorney general’s office released proposed Colorado Privacy Act rules onto the secretary of state’s website Monday in search of public feedback on the rules’ contents. 

The CPA, which Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed into law in July last year, gives Coloradans the right to see what data companies collect about them and allows them to decide “whether and how companies can continue to collect, store, use, or sell their personal information,” according to a news release from Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser’s office. 

The act also requires companies that collect personal data to “be transparent” about how it is used, and to take precautions to reduce risk of harming the consumers whose data is being used. The attorney general is authorized to create governing rules to provide guidance on compliance with the act’s requirements.
