What is consumer data privacy?
Your personal information is more than your name, address and Social Security number. It includes your shopping habits, driving record, medical diagnoses, work history, credit score and much more.

 

The right to privacy refers to having control over this personal information. It is the ability to limit who has this information, how this information is kept and what can be done with it.

 

Unfortunately, personal privacy is lost, unknowingly forfeited, purchased or stolen every day.  In some instances, we individuals can control how our personal information is used.
