Nevada Privacy Law: Rights & Obligations

NRS 603A (including the SB-220) amendments imposes different obligations to different actors.

Data collectors must comply with the following obligations:

  • Take reasonable measures to delete personal information, when the business decides it will no longer maintain the records

  • Implement and maintain reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorized access to personal information (PI). If a collector passes the information on to a third party, there needs to be a clause in the underlying contract that this third party takes reasonable security measures as well.

  • In the case of data breach of computerized data including (non-encrypted) PI, the collector must give notification of breach to any resident of Nevada whose data was accessed without unreasonable delay.

Operators must comply with the following obligations:

  • Must give notice to consumers about the information collected by the operator. This notice should be accessible. It should:

    • Identify the categories of collected information collected through the website /online service

    • Describe the process for consumer to review and request changes of covered info if such a process exists

    • Describe the process of how operator notifies consumer about material changes to the notice

    • Disclose whether a third party may collect covered information

    • Effective date of the notice

  • [ADDED BY SB-220] Must provide a designated request address for consumers to submit requests to opt out of sale.

    • The request to opt-out of sale must be verified (CCPA does not require a verification of opt-out of sale requests!)

    • Operator should respond within 60 days. A 30-day extension is possible, if the operator determines that extension is reasonably necessary.
