Illinois made its first attempt at being in the vanguard of adopting new privacy laws with legislation to protect the biometric data of its residents with the Biometric Information Privacy Act. Illinois followed BIPA as the first state to pass legislation requiring an employer to disclose the use of artificial intelligence in the video-interview process with the Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act.

It should be no surprise that Illinois is now poised to continue this trend with the Data Transparency and Privacy Act.

Compliance with one does not equate to compliance with the other.

The CCPA provides California residents with certain data privacy rights that, among other things, allow consumers to access the personal information collected about them, request that their personal information be deleted and provide them the opportunity to opt out of the sale of their personal information.
