“Microsoft has encouraged Congress to pass a robust law to protect consumers’ privacy. In a letter sent to Capitol Hill Microsoft and other companies like Microsoft, eBay and Intel express support for HR 5777 bill, proposed by Congressman Bobby Rush. HR 5777, the BEST PRACTICES Act, would require consumers be told in clear and simple terms about what information from them is being collected, how it’s being used, and who gets to see it,” stated Frank Torres.
“The bill also provides consumers be given choices about collection and use of their data and understandable and easy to use control options. The Rush Bill is a balanced approach that protects consumer privacy while allowing for continued innovation so companies can give consumers online services and products they want. As Congress considers privacy legislation in the coming sessions, HR 5777 serves as a productive privacy model,” Torres said.
