For those entities who do not fall within the parameters of the exclusion, the amendments require notice of the following categories of information:
- Identify the categories of "covered information" collected through the website and categories of third parties with whom that information may be shared.
"Covered information" includes (a) a first and last name; (b) a home or other physical address that includes the names of a street and city or town; (c) an electronic mail address; (d) a telephone number; (e) a social security number; (f) an identifier what allows a specific individual to be contacted either physically or online; and (g) any other information concerning an individual collected from that person through the website or online service in combination with any other identifier in a form that makes the information personally identifiable.
- Describes the process, if any, by which the user may review and request changes to "covered information" collected through the website.
- Disclose whether third parties may collect information about a user's online activities from the website.
- Provide an effective date of the notice.
- Describe how the website operator will notify the consumer of any material changes to the notices required to be made under the new law.
Under the amendments, the Nevada Attorney General will have the power to issue temporary or permanent injunctive relief against the website operator and to assess penalties up to $5,000 per violation to enforce compliance. No private right of action is afforded to the consumer for violations of these new provisions of the Nevada law.
