Gov. Ned Lamont signed the Connecticut Data Privacy Act at Amity Regional Middle School in Orange on Friday.
The new law is aimed at protecting everyone, but especially kids.
"You now have the right to see your data, to correct your data, to delete your data, to make a copy of your data, and most importantly, as the lieutenant governor said, to actually tell them not to collect your data in the first place,” said Connecticut Rep. Mike D'Agostino
Parents will have to agree to data sharing for kids under 16. 
The new law doesn't kick in until next summer.
