On January 1, 2016, a new law will go into effect in Delaware that requires all book service providers with online sales exceeding two percent of their gross sales to protect the privacy of customer information, reports the American Booksellers Association. The Delaware Online Privacy and Protection Act will not affect most independent booksellers because it applies only to companies that sell a lot of books online, the report states. And unlike reader privacy laws in California and New Jersey, it does not affect brick-and-mortar stores. The Delaware law does not impose penalties but does allow that a company could be the target of a civil suit for breach of privacy.
