Attorney Jenifer McIntosh will talk about responsibilities and rights: what are peoples' rights with regard to their personal data, and what are companies' responsibilities with their use of personal data?

She'll run through the GDPR and CCPA, with a little touchpoint on the Colorado law. We can then get into what people need to be aware of with regard to their collection, use, and protection of personal data. We can also discuss what you can do for your own protection.

Some questions she will answer are:

1) What permission do you need to explicitly seek when you gather information from actions taken by the user on the site (e.g. purchasing a product, filling out a web form, signing up for a newsletter, registering to get access to content)?

2) What permission do you need to explicitly seek regarding cookies (e.g. tracking pixels, analytics scripts, etc.)?

3) What do you need to do in terms of privacy policies, data retention policies, informing people of data compromise (which data), deleting of data, etc.?

Data Privacy, IP and litigation counsel with HIPAA, CAN-SPAM, FDA, EMA, GDPR, CCPA and other compliance experience. Creative, resourceful and hard working. I used to build fence and clean water troughs, so yes, I can say hard working.

My practice has included all manner of transactional and litigation matters, specializing in IP and anything data related. I've litigated, prosecuted, and licensed patents, trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights, and data, using each unique experience to inform another. I am more than happy to spend time with engineers, marketing, HR and leadership to explain how to leverage a global, ethical privacy governance and compliance program to outpace competitors and build loyalty with clients and consumers alike.

And yes, we will all survive the CCPA apocalypse. I promise.

Professional offspring mediator. First and Fourth Amendment Junkie. I truly love my work and the amazing people & clients I get to work with. I am also extremely passionate about making this world a better place - for everyone on it.
