A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO REQUIRE DISCLOSURE TO CONSUMERS THAT PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED BY A BUSINESS MAY BE ACCESSIBLE BY PERSONS OR BUSINESSES OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES.
Amends GS 75, adding a new Article 8, Personal Information Protection Act, providing that a business collecting personal information cannot disclose that information to a third-party person or business located outside the United States unless clear and conspicuous notice is given to the consumer in writing or electronic form. This is in addition to any other notice required by NC or federal law, but it may be included on the same written or electronic form containing such other notices. Provides that the terms, business, consumer, person, and personal information have the same meaning as in GS 75-61. Any violation of this section is a violation of GS 75-1.1 (Methods of competition, acts and practices regulated; legislative policy).
Effective October 1, 2013.
