Vice News is reporting that new rules for companies are coming into effect, which will require them to collect users’ information to protect them.
This will require more data to be collected, including social media and email data.
This could be the first step towards the introduction of new technologies, which could give corporations access to users’ private data.
Under the proposed new rules, companies will have to provide users with the ability to disable access to their data to prevent the collection of personally identifiable information (PII) from third parties.
They will also have to notify users about their rights to opt out of such data collection.
The FTC proposed the proposed rules in May of last year, and a court ruling issued in August forced them into effect.
As of August, it was unclear if the proposed changes would be put into effect by the end of the year.
However, the FTC is currently in the process of issuing final rules that will require these companies to do so.
“The FTC has received several comments from individuals and businesses regarding the proposed rule, and it is important for consumers to be aware of these changes, so that they can fully understand the impact on them,” the agency said in a statement.
“These proposed rules will help ensure that companies comply with their legal obligations, while also protecting consumers’ privacy interests.”
