Virginia: House bill to amend CDPA right to deletion introduced

House Bill ('HB') 381 to amend the Consumer Data Protection Act ('CDPA') with respect to the right to deletion was introduced, on 11 January 2022, to the Virginia General Assembly. In particular, the bill would amend and reenact the provision with respect to the rights of consumers, by providing that a 'controller that has obtained personal data about a consumer from a source other than the consumer shall be deemed in compliance with a consumer's request to delete such data […] by opting the consumer out of the processing of that data for targeted advertising, sale, or profiling […]'.

A companion bill, Senate Bill ('SB') 393, was also introduced, on 11 January 2022, with the same purpose.
