Proposed Bill: Companies To Reveal Personal Stored Data

A proposed California bill would give consumers the right to see what personal information companies have stored on them. The bill known as the California Right to Know Act of 2013 would empower consumers to disclosure on demand.

If asked, a company must provide all relevant stored or sold information from the past year within 30 days. Companies that don't keep data, or that anonymize it to the extent that it cannot be linked to a particular person, won't have to report.
