On May 28, 2021, New York City enacted privacy legislation that specifically targets owners of multifamily dwellings. The Tenant Data Privacy Act (TDPA) addresses perceived privacy issues surrounding the use of smart access systems in multi-family dwellings and is modeled, in part, after broader European and California privacy legislation.
