UNIFORM PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION ACT PUBLISHED
The Uniform Law Commission released a Uniform Personal Data Protection Act that is approved and recommended for enactment in all U.S. states. Among other requirements, the Act requires that controllers obtain consent to process personal data, unless the processing is for “compatible data practices“, which is processing consistent with the ordinary expectations of data subjects or that is likely to benefit data subjects substantially.” The Act lays out factors for controllers to consider when determining whether processing is a “compatible data practice”. The Act specifically allows for for use of personal data and disclosure of pseudonymized data to deliver targeted advertising and other purely expressive content to a data subject, but it prohibits such use or disclosure to offer terms (including terms related to price or quality) to a data subject that are different from terms offered to data subjects generally, or for other differential treatment. The Uniform Law Commission is a non-profit conference of qualified representatives appointed by each state government to draft and promote enactment of uniform state laws where uniformity across states is desirable and practical. Uniform laws created by the commission are not binding law until adopted by a U.S. state legislature. Legislatures are urged to adopt Uniform laws as written to promote uniformity, but they are ultimately guidelines for legislatures to borrow from or adapt as they see fit.
