Bill would strengthen online privacy rights
Thursday - 3/10/2011, 3:05pm EST
A new bill would require that companies tracking consumer data seek permission before sharing information about a person with other companies.
Consumers would also be allowed to see the data collected about them.
The Wall Street Journal reports the bill will be co-sponsored by Senators John McCain and John Kerry.
The bill would cover data including contact information, fingerprints, and cellphone and computer ID information, and be applied to all industries.
