CR Supports SB 11, the MD Online Consumer Protection and Child Safety Act

Consumer Reports writes in support of the Maryland Online Consumer Protection and Child Safety Act (SB 11), which outlines a strong framework to protect consumer privacy. Though consumers in Europe and California enjoy baseline privacy protections, Maryland residents currently do not have similar basic privacy rights. SB 11 would address this by extending to Maryland consumers the right to access, delete, and stop the sale of their personal information, including through a global opt out.
