New shredding law offers more consumer protection

Another new law offers privacy protection for consumers. It requires businesses to shred, destroy, or in some way make unreadable consumer records no longer kept by the company.

What we have found is companies tend take the time to destroy their records properly, but just throw their customers records out in a garbage can.

The new law says now your privacy matters too.
