Did you know there are actual laws regarding paper shredding? Most Houstonians are not aware of the laws for the proper disposal of records containing personal information. The Texas Attorney General is very serious about protecting Texans from identity theft. It doesn’t matter if the information was used in a crime or the age of the documents, the mere fact that documents were disposed of in an improper manner will find that company or individual answering to the Attorney General’s office. And in all likelihood, they will find themselves writing a large settlement check to the State and will incur a hefty legal bill.

The Texas Attorney General's Office has investigators that do routine inspections throughout the state. More often it is a neighboring business, a concerned citizen, or local police officer who discovers the improperly disposed of documents. When that happens, the local news is usually contacted and you find yourself in front of Houstonians via news camera trying to explain how and why it happened. The Texas Business & Commerce Code under Chapter 35 requires all businesses to have on file a document retention and disposal policy. Penalties under this law can fine a business or an individual up to $500.00 for each improperly disposed of record! The new Identity Theft Enforcement Act can mean fines up to $50,000 per violation – for just one record. If your business puts out a reassurance to your clients that you will protect their information, you could find yourself facing penalties of up to $20,000 per violation if found improperly disposing of information.

The purpose of these new laws is to protect millions of Texans from the growing rate of identity theft. These laws are also designed to protect businesses who are also finding themselves losing millions of dollars from identity theft. The following Acts protect consumers. Businesses along with individuals should be knowledgeable with their content
