ACLU of Connecticut Releases Updated Privacy Guide

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

The web has changed in ten years and the laws regarding your privacy have changed too. The American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut has released an update to it’s 2003 Privacy Rights In Connecticut.

The document is available for free download. The 130 pages cover gray areas in the laws and what current guidelines are in place.

“Advancing technologies invade privacy, and the law is not keeping up,” said Sandra Staub, legal director of the ACLU of Connecticut. “We want not only to provide a practical guide to the current state of privacy law but to expose those areas where new and comprehensive protection is needed. If we allow our expectation of privacy to diminish, we might never recover that lost ground.

The guide was compiled by Robert Schultz, a volunteer attorney with the ACLU CT along with editing and research with staff and interns.
