 AN  ACT to amend the general business law, in relation to the management
   and oversight of personal data
 
   THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section  1.  Short  title. This act shall be known and may be cited as
 the "New York privacy act".
   § 2. Legislative intent. 1. Privacy is  a  fundamental  right  and  an
 essential element of freedom. Advances in technology have produced ramp-
 ant  growth  in  the amount and categories of personal data being gener-
 ated,  collected,  stored,  analyzed,  and  potentially  shared,   which
 presents  both  promise  and peril. Companies collect, use and share our
 personal data in ways that can be difficult for  ordinary  consumers  to
 understand. Opaque data processing policies make it impossible to evalu-
 ate  risks  and  compare  privacy-related  protections  across services,
 stifling competition. Algorithms quietly make  decisions  with  critical
 consequences for New York consumers, often with no human accountability.
 Behavioral advertising generates profits by turning people into products
 and  their  activity into assets. New York consumers deserve more notice
 and more control over their data and their digital privacy.
   2. This act seeks to help New York consumers regain their privacy.  It
 gives New York consumers the ability to exercise more control over their
 personal data and requires businesses to be responsible, thoughtful, and
 accountable managers of that information.  To  achieve  this,  this  act
 provides  New  York  consumers  a  number of new rights, including clear
 notice of how their data is being used, processed and shared; the abili-
 ty to access and obtain a copy of their data in a  commonly  used  elec-
 tronic  format,  with  the  ability to transfer it between services; the
 ability to correct inaccurate data and to delete  their  data;  and  the
