Florida Digital Bill of Rights (FDBR)

Passed June 6, 2023
Effective Date July 1, 2024
Who it applies to

Any business with global revenues of $1 billion or more that do business in Florida or produce products or services for Florida residents and either: i) Derive at least 50% of revenues from the sale of online ads, ii) Operate a cloud-connected, voice activated smart speaker, or iii) Operate an online marketplace with over 250,00- installs.. Exempt entities include nonprofits, government agencies, higher education institutions, and financial institutions subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).

Penalties Up to $50,000 per violation, treble damages for certain violations

What’s notable about it:

Florida’s “Digital Bill of Rights” is a bold name for what is arguably the most narrowly-applicable privacy law in the US. The law is squarely aimed at tech giants, targeting only billion-dollar corporations that sell online ads, sell smart speakers, or run an app store. So unless you’re Meta, Amazon, or Google, maybe don’t worry too much about this one. It has a high applicability threshold ($1B or more!), and while the term “personal data” is broadly defined, it does not include pseudonymous data, which includes most third-party cookies or aggregated/anonymous consumer information.
