Alastair Mactaggart

Organisation: Californians for Consumer Privacy (US)

Alastair is Board Chair and Co-Founder of Californians for Consumer Privacy and in 2018 created and led a ballot measure which resulted in the California Consumer Privacy Act. In 2020, Alastair wrote the California Privacy Rights Act, which 9.4 million Californians voted to enact in the November election, giving Californians among the best privacy rights in the world. Alastair believes that everyone should have the fundamental right of data privacy and be in control of their own personal information. He believes it’s not right that companies you’ve never heard of, can buy and sell information about you, and that you have no control over that process. He believes that parents should have a choice about how their children’s data is collected and sold.
