Comments to NTIA to Advance Consumer Privacy while Protecting Prosperity and Innovation

Charter filed comments in response to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration’s notice and request for comment on ways to advance consumer privacy while protecting prosperity and innovation.

We believe that a uniform national framework establishing strong online privacy protections and data security is needed to give all consumers confidence that their privacy is protected. This framework should seek to empower and inform consumers through rules that address five core principles—control, transparency, parity, uniformity, and security.

Charter therefore strongly supports NTIA’s call for a framework that protects individual privacy and fosters technological innovation, particularly NTIA’s focus on a privacy framework that “reduces fragmentation nationally and increases harmonization and interoperability nationally and globally.”
