In an effort to protect the privacy of computer data and personal information for Georgians, Sen. Greg Dolezal (R-Cumming) filed Senate Bill 394. The “Georgia Computer Data Privacy Act” has a list of 25 powerful Senators as co-sponsors and has been assigned to the Senate Committee on Science and Technology.

According to Dolezal, SB 394 contains a long list of provisions relating to the collection or sale by a business of a consumer’s personal information. The bill provides consumers with the right to request disclosure and deletion of certain information and the right to opt in and out of the sale of their personal information and provides guidelines for the use of personal information in research. The bill declares that “individuals within the state have previously been exploited for monetary gain and manipulation by private ventures in utilization of personal data.”
