Nevada Privacy Act

Gives consumers the option to “opt out” of sharing personal information

What is the Nevada Privacy Act?

The Nevada Privacy Act gives consumers broad rights to opt out of the sale of their personal information. Originally focused on companies that own or operate a website or online service for commercial purposes and collect and maintain “covered information,” the law was expanded, effective October 1, 2021, to include “data brokers.”

“Data brokers” are defined as “persons primarily engaged in the business of purchasing covered information about consumers in Nevada from operators and other data brokers and making sales of such information.” The 2021 amendment includes exemptions from being considered “sales” for certain categories, e.g., disclosures as part of a merger, acquisition, or bankruptcy.

Why is the Nevada Privacy Act Important?

All organizations that process data related to Nevada consumers need to follow the legislation’s guidelines which require a Privacy Policy, along with information security controls and processes to comply with the law. Businesses do not have to be located in Nevada to be subject to the law.

Noncompliance can result in temporary or permanent injunctions and large fines.
