A recently signed California law requires website operators to include a disclosure in their privacy policies regarding how their websites respond to “Do Not Track” mechanisms.

California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law a bill that requires operators of websites and online services, including mobile applications, to disclose in their privacy policies how they respond to “Do Not Track” mechanisms in web browsers. The law amends the California Online Privacy Protection Act (“CalOPPA”), and website operators and online service providers have until January 1, 2014 to comply with the new requirements.
