WASHINGTON – Today, global tech trade association ITI issued the following statement on the introduction of the Setting an American Framework to Ensure Data Access, Transparency, and Accountability (SAFE DATA) Act in the U.S. Senate:
“The SAFE DATA Act includes meaningful privacy protections for consumers, well-defined company responsibilities, and strong preemption," said Shannon Taylor, ITI Senior Vice President of Government Affairs. "We appreciate the work of Senators Wicker and Blackburn to move this important discussion forward. Our industry remains committed to working with U.S. policymakers to enact a strong U.S. federal privacy law that builds mutual trust, protects consumers, and supports continued innovation. We hope this bill can serve as a strong contribution to continuing conversations on how Congress can advance this effort.”
ITI published the Framework to Advance Interoperable Rules (FAIR) on Privacy, a legislative roadmap that advances the privacy rights of consumers and defines the responsibilities of companies in using personal data while continuing to enable the innovations that transform our lives.
