The Connecticut State Governor signed, on 10 May 2022, Senate Bill ('SB') 6 for An Act Concerning Personal Data Privacy and Online Monitoring ('CTDPA'), thereby enacting the legislation. The CTDPA applies to entities that:

  • conduct business in Connecticut, or produce products or services that are targeted to Connecticut residents; and

  • during the preceding calendar year, either:
  • - processed the personal data of at least 100,000 consumers; or
  • - processed the personal data of at least 25,000 consumers and derived more than 25% of their gross revenue from the sale of personal data.

Additionally, the CTDPA establishes new rights for consumers, such as the right of access, rectification, deletion, portability, and the right to opt out of targeted advertising, sale of personal data, and profiling. Furthermore, the CTDPA outlines various controller and processor responsibilities, such as:

  • providing privacy notices to consumers;
  • processing data according to the principles of purpose limitation and data minimisation;
  • establishing, implementing, and maintaining reasonable administrative, technical, and physical data security practices; and
  • undertaking and documenting data protection assessments for each of the controller's processing activities that present a heightened risk of harm to a consumer.

Notably, the CTDPA does not provide individuals with a private right of action.

Finally, the CTDPA provides the State Attorney General with exclusive powers to enforce the provisions of the CTDPA.

The CTDPA will enter into effect on 1 July 2023.
