Delaware state legislators and Attorney General Matt Denn on Friday announced four bills that will help strengthen privacy laws when it comes to the Internet and social media.
The bills are designed to protect people's identities and online activities.
“Using the Internet at work, home, school and for recreation has become an everyday occurrence for the overwhelming majority of people,” Denn said. “As a result, we have to do everything possible to protect the privacy and personal information of Delawareans.”
The bills would tackle four different areas of online activity including: a Victim Online Privacy Act, a Delaware Online Privacy and Protection Act, a Student Data Privacy Protection Act, and an Employer Use of Social Media bill.
“Each of the four pieces of legislation addresses different privacy concerns, so I look forward to the General Assembly approving each bill in order to give everyone the utmost protection," Denn said.
