Online businesses take note. Delaware may finally have an online privacy law. On June 25, 2015, the Delaware General Assembly passed SS1 for SB68, known as the “Delaware Online Privacy and Protection Act.” If signed by the governor, DOPPA will go into effect on January 1, 2016.

DOPPA three stated purposes: (i) to prohibit the operator of an internet service directed at children from marketing or advertising certain products or services on a website that are deemed harmful to children; (ii) to require an operator of an internet service to conspicuously post its privacy policy, if the internet service collects personally identifiable information (PII) from Delaware residents for commercial purposes; and (iii) to protect the personal information of users of digital book services by prohibiting a provider of book services from disclosing personal information regarding users of book services to law enforcement entities, governmental entities or other parties except under specified circumstances.
