Virginia has signed its data protection rules into law, the second state to do so in the US after California, Virginia Business reported. Utah is planning to pass a similar bill by the end of this week. Under the Consumer Data Protection Act, which passed the General Assembly last month, people will be able to choose not to have their data collected by certain companies. They will also receive copies of their online data, amend or delete that data, as well as opt out of supplying data for marketing or other purposes.
