Last Tuesday, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam signed the Consumer Data Protection Act into law—and with his signature, Virginia joins California in leading the charge for consumer privacy across the country.
Know what companies have your data -- and what data they have
Delete your data from companies that shouldn’t have it
Stop companies from selling your data
But in some ways Virginia goes even further, granting consumers additional rights to:
Correct inaccuracies in data companies have collected on you
Opt out of targeted advertising and other individual "profiling"
While no privacy law is perfect, we at Confidently proudly support any efforts to provide consumers with more rights over their personal data and more protection of their privacy.
However, since a typical consumer’s data has been collected by hundreds (if not thousands!) of different companies, empowering consumers with strong privacy rights doesn’t solve the problem alone.
That's why we built Confidently: We help you take full advantage of your new privacy rights by doing the hard work for you, deleting your data from dozens of data brokers, stopping dozens of consumer brands from selling your data, and monitoring a growing list of 200+ companies on your behalf.
