Data privacyConsumer privacy laws play a crucial role in safeguarding individuals' personal information from unauthorized use or disclosure. In Florida, several laws are in place to protect consumer privacy, and understanding these regulations is essential for both individuals and businesses.

Knowing when to seek the counsel of a privacy law attorney is also crucial in navigating complex privacy issues. Consult with attorney Jibrael Hindi if you believe a party has violated your rights under privacy laws.

Overview of Consumer Privacy Laws in Florida

Many laws protect the privacy of consumers and their information in Florida, and you have rights under the following and more:

Florida Information Protection Act (FIPA)

FIPA is the primary state law governing data breaches and the protection of personal information. It requires entities that collect and store personal information to implement reasonable security measures and to notify affected individuals in the event of a data breach.

Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA)

FDUTPA prohibits deceptive and unfair trade practices, including false representations related to the collection and use of personal information. Violations under FDUTPA may result in legal action and penalties.

Florida Electronic Mail Communications Act (FEMCA)

FEMCA regulates the transmission of commercial electronic mail and prohibits deceptive practices in email marketing. It includes provisions related to obtaining consent, accurate header information, and the inclusion of opt-out mechanisms in marketing emails.

Florida's Financial Information Privacy Act (FIFPA)

FIFPA safeguards the privacy of consumers' financial information held by financial institutions. It outlines restrictions on the disclosure of nonpublic personal information and establishes requirements for consumer consent.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

While not specific to Florida, COPPA is a federal law that protects the online privacy of children under the age of 13. Websites and online services targeting children must comply with COPPA, requiring parental consent for the collection of personal information from minors.
