Wisconsin: Bill for consumer data protection passes State Assembly

Assembly Bill ('AB') 957 for an Act on consumer data protection was passed, on 23 February 2022, by the Wisconsin State Assembly. In particular, AB 957 passed with amendments, including to the definition of biometric data, and with respect to the consumer's right to deletion. More specifically, and with respect to the consumer's right to deletion, the amendments to AB 957 provide for the addition of a new paragraph which would provide that where a controller has obtained personal data about a consumer from a source other than the consumer, the controller should be deemed in compliance with a consumer's request to delete the personal data by doing any of the following:

  • deleting the personal data, retaining a record of the request, and the minimum data necessary to ensure the consumer's personal data remains deleted from the controller's records, and not using the retained data for any other purpose; or
  • not processing the consumer's personal data except as otherwise authorised under Section 2 of the bill, once enacted.

AB 957 will now be considered in the State Senate.
