Hi, Mark, Please accept my apology for the delay, The site is having technical difficulties and it becomes difficult to get into a question, return to a question, and at times, loses the Answer when we press the "Answer" button.
Thank you for your additional information. Reading Nevada Revised Statutes Section 603A.020, Section 603A.215, and the definition of personal information contained in Section 603A.040, together, the meaning appears to be a very technical one. The Statute prohibits anybody within the definition of "data collector" from transferring or sending anybody's personal information by means of any electronic, nonvoice equipment, except by fax (facsimile). The Statutes, however, do not prohibit any "data collector" from requesting this information. In other words, a website, being a "data collector" by the Statute's definition, can request an individual to send them personal information using the internet, but they will be prohibited from sending or transferring this personal information, without first encrypting it, to anybody else electronically, or by nonvoice transmittal, except by using a fax machine.
If a website requests personal information from an individual, they are not in violation of the Statute; it is only if they send or transfer this personal information by electronic means, other than by fax, without first encrypting it, to any other individual, company, website, or any other entity, that they would be in violation.
I have not read the legislative history of these sections, so I cannot say if the Nevada State Legislature, when enacting this particular piece of legislation, intended this fine distinction between "requesting" and "sending" personal information, but as enacted, there is a definite distinction between the two,
