NCTA Statement Regarding U.S. House Approval of CRA Regarding Privacy Rules

“Today’s Congressional action to repeal the FCC’s misguided rules marks an important step toward restoring consumer privacy protections that apply consistently to all internet companies. With a proven record of safeguarding consumer privacy, internet providers will continue to work on innovative new products that follow ‘privacy-by-design’ principles and honor the FTC’s successful consumer protection framework. We look forward to working with policymakers to restore consistency and balance to online privacy protections.”


[As a reminder, in late January, associations representing virtually all of the leading US internet service providers reiterated their commitment to protecting their customers’ privacy online and released detailed and comprehensive principles. These principles closely adhere to the FTC’s highly respected framework and include specific policies on transparency, choice, security, and notifications in the case of a data breach.]
