The new Nevada privacy law was the first law in the U.S. to grant rights to consumers regarding the sale of their information. Senate Bill 220 (SB 220) took effect in October 2019, amending the state’s existing law for owners and operators of websites or online commercial providers.
With some exceptions, SB 220 applies to website operators that collect information about consumers in the state of Nevada, no matter where the business is located. In addition, SB 220 requires that companies respond to consumer requests on a specific timeline or face penalties.
