A group of 24 tech companies has voiced its support of an amendment to the California Consumer Privacy Act, according to a post on the DuckDuckGo Blog. The Privacy for All Act of 2019, originally sponsored by Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, D-Calif., would give consumers the ability to opt out of data sharing and sue organizations for violations. A letter to Assemblymember Ed Chau, D-Calif., was signed by executives from DuckDuckGo, Tresorit, Brave and Ghostery. “A.B. 1760 holds all covered companies to that standard and makes sure that Californians’ information is protected by default,” the letter states. “It will give all Californians the knowledge and power to truly control their personal information, as well as the ability to practically exercise and legally enforce their privacy rights, all without being punished with higher prices or degraded service.”
