Colorado Privacy Act

Colorado has introduced a new bill that protects its residents’ right to privacy. It will be known as the Colorado Privacy Act (CPA). The act aims to ban businesses from sharing users’ private information without prior consent and approval—similarly to California and Virginia’s respective laws CCPA and CDPA.

This new law is set to protect individual rights regarding their online information or personal data from being collected, shared, sold, etc. Now users have “opt-out rights” over commercial uses of their data.

Colorado governor Jared Polis signed the Data Privacy Act into law on July 8th, 2021. It is slated to go into effect on July 1st, 2023.
