Vermont: Data privacy and consumer protection law enters into effect

The Act Relating to Data Privacy and Consumer Protection ('the Act') entered into effect, on 1 July 2020, which amends Vermont's data breach law and creates a data privacy law regarding student data. In particular, the Act requires, among other things, breach notification to consumers within 45 days after the discovery or notification of the breach by data collectors that own or license computerised personally identifiable information or login credentials that includes personal information concerning a consumer. In addition, the Act outlines prohibited operations with respect to student data such as targeted advertising, and outlines operator duties, as well as permitted disclosure of student data, among others.
