ALTA’s Principles for Data Privacy Laws

The American Land Title Association (ALTA), which represents the real estate settlement services, abstract and title insurance industry, has been a long-time advocate for efforts to protect the personal information of consumers. Since 2013, industry standards encompassed in ALTA’s Best Practices have included requirements for a written privacy and information security program to protect non-public personal information.

The conversation occurring nationally on data privacy is an important one. To help better engage in these discussions, ALTA has developed principles for data privacy laws to guide these conversations so that our member companies can continue to offer consumers an efficient home buying or selling experience, while at the same time protecting private information uniformly and consistently.
