Act exemptions include:
- Financial institutions and data governed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
- Personal data subject to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
- Covered entities governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
- Protected health information under HIPAA
- Nonprofit organizations
- Higher education institutions

- Data processed or maintained in the course of employment
Employers are encouraged to consult with legal counsel to determine if their use of data will be subject to TIPA in preparation for July, 2024.
