A New U.S. Model for Privacy? Comparing the Washington Privacy Act to GDPR, CCPA, and More
In Washington State, a new comprehensive privacy law is moving quickly. If approved, it will reach the House, which is currently considering (and amending) an almost identical companion bill. The deadline for the bill to be voted on by both Senate and House (including, if applicable, resolving any differences) is March 12, 2020.
FPF has created the following charts to compare key elements of the current California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA); the upcoming 2020 California Ballot Initiative (CPRA); the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); the WPA of 2019 (Senate Bill 5376); and the WPA of 2020 (Substitute Senate Bill 6281).
The following charts take into account the following key features of all laws: (1) jurisdictional scope; (2) definitions and structure; (3) pseudonymous data; (4) individual rights; (5) obligations on companies; (6) facial recognition provisions; and (7) preemption and enforcement.
