How Eastside A.A. complies with the Washington Privacy Act
“Anonymity is the spiritual foundation of our program. If we are to recover, we must feel free to say what is in our minds and hearts. Therefore, who you see here, what you hear here, when you leave here, let it stay here”
The Washington Privacy Act follows similar legislation enacted such as the European Union’s GDPR, and CCPA in California. It aims to give consumers new rights to ownership over their data and establish new transparency requirements for companies that process consumer data.
We at Eastside Intergroup believe that compliance with the standards set forth in the Washington Privacy Act, along with systems that allow users to remain anonymous is the best way to serve our users while safeguarding their data and anonymity.
