    LAS VEGAS -- Two top federal regulators on Wednesday urged tech companies to expand their efforts to protect consumer privacy.

    "There is a responsibility if you collect [personal] information," Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler said at CES.

    He said Internet service providers (ISPs) have a responsibility to make sure personal data is held securely and that companies are transparent about what's being captured. Wheeler also said consumers need to know that they have a choice -- opting in or out -- as to whether their personal data is collected.
