The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation will hold a hearing on online consumer privacy on March 16. The hearing will examine commercial practices that involve collecting, maintaining, using, and disseminating large amounts of consumer information.
John D. Rockefeller (D-WestVa), Chairman of the Committee said:
“Modern technology has connected people with the world and led to new innovations, new products and new experiences. But with these new opportunities come new risks. I want to know if the privacy protections we have in place are enough, or whether Congress needs to step in and do more. As Chairman, I’m committed to doing everything I can to protect consumers’ privacy.”
