Any major enforcement actions recently?
Answer – Particularly interesting recent privacy actions – not all of them under the new state laws (most of which have not yet become enforceable by regulators) are:
California v. Sephora – California Attorney General action alleging failure of web retailer to institute sufficient “do not sell” or targeted advertising “opt out” methods;
FTC v. HomeAdvisor – FTC action alleging mischaracterization of business lead-generation data (and imposing $7.2 million fine);
FTC v. Kochava – FTC action alleging that sale of geolocation data without filtering out “sensitive” locations dismissed by federal court (with leave to replead claims).
