Riding the New Wave of US Data Laws with Consentmo
August 23, 2023
The landscape of data privacy in the United States is ever-evolving. With the digital era deepening its roots, two more states have decided to heighten their guardrails around consumers' digital data: Colorado with its CPA (Colorado Privacy Act) and Connecticut's CTDPA (Connecticut Data Privacy Act). These join the ranks of VCDPA (Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act) and the renowned CCPA/CPRA (California Consumer Privacy Act/California Privacy Rights Act). And guess what? Consentmo is right on the beat, ensuring you stay compliant without the sweat. 👌

Enabling CPA and CTDPA from the General tab
A Fresh Look - The Unified US Laws Page:
We're all about simplicity and efficiency. While having separate pages for VCDPA and CCPA/CPRA had its time, with the addition of CPA and CTDPA, we felt it was time for a change. Rather than scattering information, we've centralized it. Premium Consentmo users can now generate a singular, comprehensive US Laws page via the General tab. This robust compliance page integrates the nuances of all US data protection laws available in our app. And if you're wondering about the old separate pages - they've gracefully exited, making room for this consolidated powerhouse.
The new US Laws Compliance page
In the digital age, knowing what data a platform stores about you isn’t just a luxury—it's a right. Recognizing this, we've added the US Laws Data Portability request feature for you! With a simple click on a link, your clients can effortlessly download all the data that is stored for them. Talk about transparency! And, wait for it… once they make the request, they will get a neatly organized email with a link to all of the details.
Using the US Laws Compliance page
But that's not all! We believe in making things crystal clear for our users. So, at the end of the Compliance page, we've summed up a nifty line that highlights all the US laws we've got you covered for. This way, you're always in the loop, every step of the way.
Another update is that when navigation to the Consent Log tab, you will see a new category - US Laws. That's right, we're making it even easier for you to understand and export the US data requests. But don't worry, your old records won't disappear, they will stay in your Consent Log history for when you need them.

Consentmo's Web Update:
But we're not stopping at the app. Our Consentmo website is also getting a dose of streamlining. A dedicated page will now serve as your hub for all things US Compliance. Everything you need, all in one place.
As the tides of data privacy laws shift, Consentmo is committed to ensuring your boat sails smoothly. With these intuitive updates, we aim to minimize confusion and maximize your compliance. After all, navigating data privacy should feel empowering, not daunting. Dive in, explore the changes, and as always, we're here to assist!
