Volunteer Editors

While most state laws that touch on privacy issues are already in the Wiki, volunteers will keep the states current.

  • To learn more about how to join the Privacy Wiki as State Editors, please reach out to our Chief Legal Editor. We are excited to see you as a Legal State Editor in the Wiki!

We hope to expand into other jurisdictions (such as the EU) in the near future!

Discussion group

  • We also have a privacy wiki discussion group! Please go to Privacy Wiki Discussion Group to join. This discussion group is used to ask questions, ask for help (e.g. if you're an editor), share ideas, e.g. on best practices for editing the Wiki.
