Intel Corp. released a proposal for a federal bill on data privacy last week that it hopes will spur discussion on collection, use and sharing of consumers’ personal information in the U.S. and lead to more uniform legislation on data security and privacy.

“The collection of personal information is a growing concern. The US needs a privacy law that both protects consumer privacy and creates a framework in which important new industries can prosper,” David Hoffman, Intel’s associate general counsel and global privacy officer of the Santa Clara-based company said in the news release announcing the proposal. “Our model bill is designed to spur discussion that helps inspire meaningful privacy legislation.”
