Indiana to Pass Comprehensive Privacy Legislation

 Indiana Senate Bill 5, a Virginia-style comprehensive privacy bill, was unanimously passed by the State’s House and Senate. If signed by the Governor, the law will go into effect January 1, 2026. 


Indiana will be the seventh state to pass comprehensive privacy legislation, joining California and Virginia (already in effect), Colorado and Connecticut (effective July 1, 2023), Utah (effective December 31, 2023) and Iowa (effective January 1, 2025).  

Tennessee Joins States on Deck with Comprehensive Privacy Legislation

The Tennessee House unanimously passed HB 1181, which would implement the Tennessee Information Protection Act, another Virginia-style bill. The bill will move to the Senate for consideration. 


Tennessee joins Texas, Kentucky, Hawaii, Oklahoma and Montana with comprehensive privacy legislation passed through one chamber in 2023. 


Austria DPA Holding Stresses the Need for Granular Consent.

In response to a complaint by privacy advocate None of Your Business (noyb), the Austrian Data Protection Authority held that an Austrian newspaper’s cookie banner that requested a single consent for several purposes was not GDPR compliant. According to the ruling, consent must be specific to every processing purpose.


This ruling by the Austrian DPA is consistent with recent guidance released by the Conference of the Independent Data Protection Authorities of Germany (Datenschutzkonferenz or “DSK”), also stressing the requirement to obtain granular consent on a purpose-by-purpose basis.
