Founded in 2006, New Media Rights provides preventative, privacy-related legal consultation and educational resources for consumers, nonprofits, and early-stage startups across the country.
This proposal builds on our partnership with California Consumer Protection Foundation, the San Diego Office of Small Business, and our work on the FCC’s Consumer Advisory Committee.
The consultations we provide to projects before they launch has an exponential effect on reducing privacy violations because we can prevent issues *before* they happen– fixing the violations at the source. For example, if we directly assist *1* app developer to implement consumer-friendly privacy policies, then that app’s *10,000* users will be issue-free.
We then publish educational resources based on those consultations.
We have worked on more than 2000 cases, have had 2 million people visit our website, and have created more than 13 hours of educational videos that have been viewed more than 350,000 times.
