Changes Are Coming to Texas Privacy Laws in 2024. What Do You Need to Know?
Too Long; Didn't ReadThe Texas Data Privacy and Security Act (TDPSA) is set to take effect on July 1, 2024, making Texas the latest state to implement robust consumer data protection laws. This legislation applies to businesses that collect or process personal data of Texas residents and imposes various obligations, including granting consumers rights to access, correct, and delete their data. It also requires transparent privacy policies and outlines enforcement procedures, with penalties for non-compliance. Small businesses and entities subject to HIPAA or GLBA are exempt, but all others must prepare for these new data privacy regulations.
