Attorney General Lockyer Gains Enhanced Privacy Protections in Consumer Protection Cases
(SACRAMENTO) – Attorney General Bill Lockyer announced today a multi-state settlement with Ziff Davis to enhance consumer privacy protections by the multi-media company that failed to establish security measures to protect customer personal information such as credit card numbers.
A day earlier, Lockyer joined with nine other state attorneys general in a multi-state settlement with DoubleClick, the nation's leading Internet advertising service, to set new standards for consumer online privacy. Central to the settlement is public disclosure of how information is gathered from people who visit web sites.
