This year has widened the landscape of consumer privacy protections, with dozens of comprehensive privacy bills moving through state legislatures and becoming enacted. So far in 2023, Iowa’s Act Relating to Consumer Data Protection (“Iowa Privacy Law”) and Indiana’s Consumer Data Protection Act (“ICDPA”) were signed into law. These two laws join the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (“VCDPA”), California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), Colorado Privacy Rights Act (“CPA”), Connecticut’s Public Act No. 22-15 (“CTPA”), and Utah Consumer Privacy Act (“UCPA”) in the state comprehensive consumer privacy law framework. The Iowa Privacy Law becomes effective on January 1, 2025, and the ICDPA becomes effective on July 1, 2026. The VCDPA and CPRA (amending the California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA”) went into effect on January 1, 2023, while the CPA and CTPA go into effect on July 1, 2023. The UCPA will go into effect December 31, 2023.

Florida is the latest state to pass a consumer privacy bill, pending Governor DeSantis’ signature, that will go into full effect on July 1, 2024.

While the Florida Digital Bill of Rights found in S.B. 262 provides similar rights as the other state laws going into effect, it also differs in important and significant ways. The primary difference is the definition of a “controller.” A controller must have $1 billion in global gross revenue (a significant departure from the $25 million dollar requirement in other states), and at least one of the following: i) 50% of global gross revenue coming from the sale of advertisements online; ii) operates a consumer smart speaker and voice command service; or iii) operates an app store or digital distribution platform with at least 250,000 different software applications. Based on these threshold requirements, most of the bill is clearly intended to target only a select group of businesses. However, there are obligations placed on businesses that don’t meet the full definition of a controller in Section 501.715, as we discuss below.
