A New Jersey–based company may be the first to violate Vermont’s data broker law after it was discovered the entity failed to disclose its possession of data on minors, Philly.com reports. ALC Inc. told regulators it did not knowingly collect minors’ data, despite advertisements to sell 1.2 million student records belonging to subjects between the ages of 14 and 17. ALC registered as a data broker in Vermont in January in order to comply with the new rules. ALC Chief Marketing Officer Sherry Booles said the company is “reviewing this information and will update our Vermont registration as needed.”
