Sometimes it seems the United States is more a loose federation than a national government. States have a major role in law-making. Data privacy is no exception. A recent law adopted by the State of Maine differs greatly from the California act that will come into force on January 1, 2020. Maine’s law will be effective on July 1, 2020. This podcast hits the highlights of it. Melissa Kern, Co-Chair of Frost Brown Todd LLC’s Privacy and Data Security Team explains that the Maine law applies to broadband internet access services – the folks who bring us access to the internet – not website hosts, not everyone holding personal data – but providers like ATT and Spectrum as well as regional internet access providers. If a provider has even one customer in Maine that is billed for service there, the Maine law applies. There’s no safe harbor threshold.
