On January 1, 2012, the California Reader Privacy Act went into effect. The Act requires all “book service providers,” i.e., book sellers, in the State to take certain steps when responding to governmental requests for user information and to make specific reports and disclosures regarding those requests.

The Act protects unauthorized disclosure of private information regarding books and book readers.

California consumers are increasingly utilizing digital book services and providers and in connection therewith such entities may collect detailed personal information about consumers such as books browsed, how much time is spent reading each page, and digital notes made in the margins. The Act is meant to address implicated privacy issues and codify the privacy and free speech safeguards for expressive records guaranteed by the California Constitution.
