More Information on Business Insider Video Privacy Violations
Federal law prohibits video-service providers, such as Business Insider and many other services and websites, from disclosing personally identifiable information (“PII”) relating to videos that viewers and subscribers consume. PII includes information that directly identifies an individual and may include their name, address, social security number or other identifying number or code, telephone number, and email address.
Subscribers or users may watch videos or other content on a company’s website or app. The company then has the ability to collect and share the user’s personal data with third parties. This data sharing can occur even without the user’s knowledge or consent, in which case their rights under the Video Privacy Protection Act or the VPPA may have been violated.
The team at Shub Law investigate such potential violations by BusinessInsider.com. If you have watched any video content on BusinessInsider.com, talk to an attorney about protecting your digital privacy rights by filling out the above form.
