Nevada Data Privacy Laws
Recently, in July 2021, Nevada’s governor approved an amendment to the privacy laws, and afforded consumers the right to opt out of their sale of data to third parties. The law broadened the scope as to what is considered a “data broker” and allowed consumers to get more protections when on the web.
This law also recently changed what the meaning of “sale” would be by broadening the definition. At first, “sale” meant that a monetary transaction needed to take place. But this law removes the requirement of a transaction. If you are located in Nevada, contact our Nevada data privacy attorneys to determine what changes you may need to make for your company. Nevada’s recent data privacy laws broadened the meaning of several terms, and the state is leaning more towards consumer protections, protecting individual data.
With the increase of consumer privacy laws, many businesses do not want to take a chance and should monitor their privacy compliance laws very strictly. This requires hiring an experienced data privacy attorney to constantly make sure that all laws are being complied with. Failure to comply with privacy and data security laws could result in fines, especially a multitude of lawsuits.

We will advise our clients on what they should do with the information and how they should offer their clients an opt-out choice when receiving newsletters.
