  • CCPA opt out, nerd edition — While we figure out how to make general-purpose CCPA opt-outs practical (feel free to set up a time on Calendly if you want to talk with me about Authorized Agent projects), here’s a quick summary of my current CCPA opt-out tools. This is a prototype only, but does work.
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Laws and Regulations | US EPA — The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) is the public law that creates the framework for the proper management of hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste. The law describes the waste management program mandated by Congress that gave EPA authority to develop the RCRA program. The term RCRA is often used interchangeably to refer to the law, regulations and EPA policy and guidance. 
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act - Wikipedia — The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), enacted in 1976, is the principal federal law in the United States governing the disposal of solid waste and hazardous waste.[1]
  • Global Privacy Control — Take Control Of Your Privacy — Online privacy should be accessible to everyone. It starts with a simpler way to exercise your rights.
  • CCPA guidance for authorized agents — The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) creates a variety of privacy rights for California consumers. Microsoft makes it easy for consumers to exercise their rights, including the rights, via a verifiable request, that we (i) disclose and access what personal data we collect, use, disclose, and sell and (ii) delete the consumer’s personal data. Per the CCPA, consumers may exercise their rights through an authorized agent. This guidance is intended for authorized agents acting on behalf of a consumer looking to exercise the above CCPA rights.

  • Consumer Reports Model State Privacy Act — Though consumers have a fundamental right to privacy, there is no comprehensive federal privacy law granting them baseline privacy and security protections. Instead of leaving it to consumers to “opt-in” or “opt-out,” this bill protects consumer privacy by prohibiting companies from engaging in privacy-invasive behaviors.
