Illinois Right to Know Act

The Illinois Right To Know Act (SB 1502 / HB 2774) introduces basic transparency around what and with whom your personal information is shared with. Every 12 months, a consumer can request:

  • What categories of personal data about the consumer is being shared with third parties, and
  • Who are the third parties receiving the consumer's data.

There are exemptions for common business cases, such as not having to disclose the web services provider a company has built their online presence on.
