Defines operator as, to the extent that it is operating in this capacity, the operator of an Internet website, online service, online application, or mobile application with actual knowledge that the site, service, or application is used primarily for K-12 school purposes and was designed and marketed for K-12 purposes. Excludes from the definition of operator a K-12 school or local board of education that operates an Internet website, online service, online application, or mobile application for that K-12 school or local board of education's own K-12 school purposes. Establishes the first prohibition to be that an operator may not knowingly engage in targeted advertising on the operator's site, service, or application if the targeting of advertising is based on any information, including covered information and persistent unique identifiers, that the operator has acquired because of the use of that operator's site, service, or application for K-12 school purposes. Defines targeted advertising as presenting an advertisement to a student where the advertisement is selected based on information obtained or inferred over time from that student's online behavior, usage of applications, or covered information. Excludes from the definition of targeted advertising advertising to a student at an online location based upon that student's current visit to that location, or in response to that student's request for information or feedback, without the retention of that student's online activities or requests over time for the purpose of targeting subsequent ads. Defines covered information as any personally identifiable information or material created or provided in use of the application or for K-12 purposes, gathered in the course of the application's operation, including, but not limited to, name, address, electronic mail address, Social Security numbers, grades, medical records and other specified identifying information. Defines K-12 school purposes as purposes that are directed by or that customarily take place at the direction of a K-12 school, a teacher, a local board of education, or the State Board of Education, or aid in the administration of school activities, including, but not limited to, instruction in the classroom or at home, administrative activities, and collaboration between students, school personnel, or parents, or are for the use and benefit of the K-12 school. Defines K-12 school and local board of education as specified.

Establishes the second prohibition to be that no operator may knowingly use information, including persistent unique identifiers, created or gathered by the operator's site, service, or application, to amass a profile about a student except in furtherance of K-12 school purposes. Provides that amass a profile does not include the collection and retention of account information that remains under the control of the student, the student's parent or guardian, or K-12 school. 

Establishes the third prohibition to be that no operator may knowingly sell or rent a student's information, including covered information. Excludes from this prohibition the purchase, merger, or other type of acquisition of an operator by another entity, if the operator or successor entity complies with the statute regarding previously acquired student information, or to national assessment providers if the provider secures the express written consent of the parent or student who is at least 13 years of age given in response to a clear, conspicuous notice, solely to provide access to employment, educational scholarships or financial aid, and postsecondary educational opportunities.

Establishes the fourth prohibition to be that no operator may knowingly disclose covered information, except as otherwise provided in subsection (d), or unless the disclosure is made for the following purposes: (1) in furtherance of the K-12 school purpose of the site, service, or application, if the recipient of the covered information disclosed under subsubsection (4) of subsection (b) does not further disclose the information unless done to allow or improve operability and functionality of the operator's site, service or application; (2) to ensure legal and regulatory compliance or protect against liability; (3) to respond to or participate in the judicial process; (4) to protect the safety or integrity of users of the site or others or the security of the site, service, or application; (5) to a third party for a school, educational, or employment purpose requested by the student or the student's parent or guardian, provided that the information is required not to be used or further disclosed by the third party for any other purpose; and (6) to a subcontractor, if the operator contractually prohibits the subcontractor from using any covered information for any purpose other than providing the contracted service to or on behalf of the operator, prohibits the subcontractor from disclosing any covered information provided by the operator with subsequent third parties, and requires the subcontractor to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices. Provides that this does not prohibit the operator's use of information for maintaining, developing, supporting, improving, or diagnosing the operator's site, service, or application. Defines subcontractor as an entity providing a service to an operator under contract and on its behalf to further a K-12 purpose. 

Requires an operator to (1) implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the covered information, and protect that covered information from unauthorized access, destruction, use modification, or disclosure and (2) delete a student's covered information within 45 days if the K-12 school or local board of education requests deletion of covered information under the control of the K-12 school or local board of education, unless a student who is at least 13 years of age, a parent, or a guardian provides express written consent in response to clear and conspicuous notice to the maintenance of covered information.

Allows an operator to use or disclose covered information of a student under the following circumstances: (1) if other provisions of federal or state law require disclosure and the operator complies with federal and state law in protecting and disclosing the information; (2) for legitimate research purposes as required by federal or state law or as allowed in furtherance of K-12 school purposes as permitted by federal and state law, as long as no covered information is used for advertising or to amass a profile on the student for purposes other than for K-12 school purposes; (3) to a K-12 school, local administrative unit, or the State Board of Education for K-12 school purposes, as permitted by State or federal law; and (4) at the direction of a K-12 school, local administrative unit, or the State Board of Education for K-12 school purposes, as permitted by State or federal law.

Provides that the statute does not prohibit an operator from the following: (1) using covered information not associated with an identified student within the operator's site, service or application or other sites, services or applications owned by the operator to improve educational products; (2) using covered information not associated with an identified student to demonstrate the effectiveness of the operator's products or services, including their marketing; (3) sharing covered information not associated with an identified student for the development and improvement of educational sites, services, or applications; (4) using recommendation engines to recommend to a student additional content or services, as specified; and (5) responding to a student's request for information or for feedback to help improve learning without the information or response being determined in whole or in part by payment or other consideration from a third party.

Provides seven limitations of the statute as follows. Provides that the statute does not (1) limit the authority of a law enforcement agency to obtain any content or information from an operator as authorized by law or under a court order; (2) limit the ability of an operator to use student data, including covered information, for adaptive learning or customized student learning purposes; (3) apply to general audience Internet websites, online services, online applications, or mobile application, even if login credentials created for an operator's site, service, or applications may be used to access those general audience sites, services or applications; (4) limit service providers from providing Internet connectivity to schools or students and their families; (5) prohibit an operator of an Internet website, online service, online application, or mobile application from marketing educational products directly to parents if the marketing did not result from the use of covered information obtained by the operator through the provision of services covered under the statute; (6) impose a duty on the provider of an electronic store, gateway, marketplace, or other means of purchasing or downloading software or applications to review or enforce compliance with the statute on those applications or software; (7) impose a duty upon a provider of an interactive computer service to review or enforce compliance with the statute by third-party content providers; and (8) prohibit students from downloading, exporting, transferring, saving, or maintaining their own student data or documents.

Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.

Changes the long title.

Makes clarifying change to Section 1(a)(5).

Adds to the statement of intent in Section 1(b) that it is also the intent of the General Assembly to avoid disputes with persons and owners of land with a situs recognized, as a result of a boundary certification, to be in the State. Replaces "border" with "boundary" throughout Section 1(b). Corrects reference in defining border certification to subsection (c) of Section 1 (was, Section 3 of the act).

Amends Section 1(c), concerning certification of the boundary between North Carolina and South Carolina, to provide that the certification is for purposes other than property tax (currently, does not excluded property tax purposes), and that the certification is as of January 1, 2017 (was, January 1, 2016). Adds that for property tax purposes, the General Assembly certifies that, as of January 1 of the year following the year the act becomes effective or the year an executive order is issued by the Governor proclaiming the boundary between North Carolina and South Carolina, whichever is earlier, the boundary between North Carolina and South Carolina is the boundary that was established in the original survey and resurveys that were adopted through legislative and executive actions, and the reestablished boundary has been approved by the boundary commissions of North Carolina and South Carolina and proclaimed as the boundary by the Governor, pursuant to GS 141-5.

Replaces "border" with "boundary" throughout Section 2(a). Amends Section 2(b), concerning designating an establishment to which permits may be issued under GS 18B-1006(n1), as enacted by this act, as a special class of property under the North Carolina Constitution, to provide that the motor fuel sold by that establishment is to be taxed at a rate of 16 cents a gallon (deletes reference to tax rate for the 2016 calendar year). Adds that an establishment designated as a special class of property by Section 2(b) may obtain monthly refunds on the difference between the motor fuel excise tax imposed under GS 105-449.80 and the motor fuel excise tax imposed by Section 2(b). Provides that the difference in taxes, together with any interest, penalties, or costs that may accrue thereon, are a lien on the real property underlying the establishment (was, on the real property of the taxpayer) as provided in GS 105-355(a). Provides that the deferred taxes, which are the difference in taxes carried forward in records by the Department, for the preceding three (was, four) calendar years are due and payable on the day Section 2(b) becomes ineffective due to the occurrence of a disqualifyng event. Adds provision that the amount collected for deferred taxes pursuant to Section 2(b) cannot exceed the tax value of the property. Clarifies that a disqualifying event occurs when the title to the real property underlying the establishment is transferred (was, when the establishment is transferred) to a new owner. Clarifies that the lien for deferred taxes is extinguished when the amount required by Section 2(b) is paid (was, when the taxes are paid). Provides that for property tax purposes, Sections 2(a) and 2(b) are effective on the date of certification applicable to property tax purposes provided in Section 1(c) of the act, and that for all other purposes, effective for taxable periods beginning on or after January 1, 2017.

Deletes the previous language of Section 3 and replaces it with the following.

Requires the North Carolina Geodetic Survey to record the final survey of the confirmed boundary in the office of the register of deeds in every county in the State where real property has been affected by the certification of the boundary. Provides that the applicable uniform fees in GS 161-10 apply to the recordation of the final survey. Requires the register of deeds to register and index the surveys in accordance with the provisions of Article 2 (duties of the office of register of deeds) of GS Chapter 161. 

Requires that, for parcels of real property affected by the certification of boundary, situated in whole or in part within the boundaries of the State, the North Carolina Geodetic Survey is to record a Notice of Affected Parcel in the office of the register of deeds in the county or counties where each affected parcel is situated, and the register of deeds is to register and index the Notice in accordance with Article 2 of GS Chapter 161. Establishes that notwithstanding any other provisions of law to the contrary, the register of deeds cannot collect any fees or taxes for the Notice recorded pursuant to Section 3(b).

New Section 3(c) establishes that title to real property previously treated as being subject to the jurisdiction of the State of South Carolina but that is recognized as being within the boundaries of North Carolina as a result of the certification of the boundary is not affected by the certification of the boundary or the recognition of the real property as being within the boundaries of North Carolina.

Provides that this class of liens is to be assigned priority as of the date of the border certification but is to remain the same priority among themselves as if Section 3(d) did not apply.

Prohibits the Commissioner of Insurance, with respect to a real estate title insurance company that previously operated only in South Carolina and issued a policy of title insurance in compliance with South Carolina law for a parcel of real estate now determined to be located wholly or partially in North Carolina, from (1) requiring a certificate of authority to do business as a real estate title insurance company under Article 26 GS Chapter 58 or (2) taking enforcement action against any title insurance company for failure to comply with Articles 26, 27, or 28 of GS Chapter 58 applicable to real estate title insurance companies in North Carolina or any other statutory or regulatory requirements applicable to all insurance companies in North Carolina.

Provides that nothing in Section 3 is intended to prevent the Commissioner of Insurance from entering into a memorandum of agreement with the South Carolina Department of Insurance with respect to enforcement of South Carolina law against real estate title insurance companies subject to Section 3.

Establishes that foreclosure actions initiated on real property encumbered by a security instrument (was, encumbered by a lien) recorded in South Carolina wherein the real property is situated, in whole or in part, within the certified North Carolina boundaries are to be governed by the terms of the security instrument sought to be enforced for that portion of real property recognized as being in a different state (previous language does not distinguish portion recognized as being in a different state). Establishes that a party seeking to enforce the terms of the security agreement may report to judicial foreclosure in accordance with the terms within the security instrument (was, security interest). Provides that, prior to initiating an action to enforce a security instrument, the security instrument or a certified copy (previously, did not allow a certified copy) must be recorded in the office of the register of deeds for the county where the subject property is situated. Adds that the provisions of GS 45-10(a) apply with regard to the appointment or substitution of a trustee for any mortgage or deed of trust foreclosed pursuant to Section 4(a).

New Section 4(b) establishes that, notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, for mortgages foreclosed pursuant to Section 4(a), a mortgagee or its successors or assigns are entitled to bid at a foreclosure sale conducted pursuant to a judgment or order of foreclosure entered by the courts of the State.

Makes technical change to Section 6(c).

Replaces "border" with "boundary" certification in GS 18B-1006(n1)(2).

Amends Section 10 by replacing "Department of Environment and Natural Resources" with "Department of Environmental Quality" throughout the Section. Adds provision to establish that nothing in Section 10 is intended to limit the applicability or employment of existing procedures under North Carolina statutes and regulations granting waivers or variances from otherwise applicable environmental rules or standards.

Changes the date from January 1, 2016, to January 1, 2017, where the owner or occupant of a dwelling unit or commercial establishment on improved property deemed to be located in whole or in party in the State of North Carolina as a result of the boundary certification may continue to receive utility services from the South Carolina utility or its successor providing service to the property.
