privacy laws

Privacy laws govern the collection, use, storage, protection, sharing, and deletion of personally identifiable information (PII) of consumers and employees—and the disclosure to consumers of what PII a business has collected about them. Examples of PII include names, addresses, telephone numbers, credit card information, online user names and passwords, and health care information. Many states have privacy laws, and these laws vary from state to state.
