SJ Res. 34 to be signed by Trump: ends internet privacy guidelines

If passed, the repeal of the FCC rule would not only allow ISPs to track user history, but they could take that browsing data, as well as app usage and location information, to sell to companies. It also allows ISPs to use and share other information, including e-mail addresses and service tier information, unless a customer "opts-out".
One critic of the repeal, Mr Craig Aaron, president of Free Press advocacy group, said major Silicon Valley firms shied away from the fight over the rules because they profit from consumer data.
The American Civil Liberties Union, which opposes the measure, said companies "should not be able to use and sell the sensitive data they collect from you without your permission". "In reality, the FCC's rules arbitrarily treat ISP's differently", he said. "With a proven record of safeguarding consumer privacy, internet providers will continue to work on innovative new products that follow "privacy-by-design" principles and honor the FTC's successful consumer protection framework". The Senate has now voted to undo the rule which would have protected personal privacy on internet.
