Why This Privacy Law is Important:
Oklahoma becomes one of many states to propose consumer data privacy laws similar to that of the European Union’s General Data Protection (GDPR) Regulation and California’s Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). If passed, the Oklahoma Computer Data Privacy Act would become effective on Nov. 1, 2021
On February 5, 2021 a bipartisan bill was filed that would require certain companies to obtain prior consent before collecting and selling the data of Oklahoma residents. If passed, the proposed Oklahoma Computer Data Privacy Act (OCDPA) would also give residents a mechanism for requesting that businesses disclose what information they have about them, as well as the right to request deletion of that information.
Under the proposed law, both the commission and private plaintiffs would be able to seek injunctive relief, actual damages, and statutory damages up to $7,500 for willful violations.
