Violation of the Data Privacy Act, which takes effect on July 1, would be an unfair business practice that could lead to a lawsuit under common law, Silver Golub & Teitell partner Ian W. Sloss told the Connecticut Law Tribune.
“Although there is no private right of action, it does set forth a standard of conduct that one expects companies to adhere to,” Sloss told the publication. “What’s happening all over the country is people enforcing their privacy rights via common law. So if people are aggrieved by a violation of this, it can violate an additional law in addition to the Connecticut privacy law. It’s really a helpful standard to set as to what the expectation of how businesses should treat your data, even though you don’t have a private right of action to enforce that under this act,” he said.
