The Information Technology Industry (ITI) Council has proposed a conceptual framework for congressional legislation that it says "advances the privacy rights of consumers and defines the responsibilities of companies in using personal data while continuing to enable the innovations that transform our lives."

The framework would purportedly help consumers better understand how their data is collected and used, support controls over personal data use, and uphold regulations that instill accountability for violations. Consumers would have "the right to access, correct, port, delete, consent, and object to the use of personal data about themselves."

Critics say the guidelines are designed to insulate technology firms from even stricter regulations that could be imposed following major corporate data breaches.
