The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has recently been modified in the second round of changes to its initially proposed regulations. The Attorney General is nearing a finalized version of the Act as these new revisions make for the third version in its history. These modifications clarify the type of information collection the Act applies to, rules to responding to requests by consumers, and how businesses should format their websites to meet these new regulations.
As the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) officially went into effect on January 1st, 2019, Californians now will have a new take on their personal information and the laws associated with it. The CCPA was officially passed and signed over a year ago and is one of the most detailed consumer privacy laws the state has ever had. With the Act in place, Californians will have new data protection policies, including the right to access information, the right to deletion, and the right to opt-out. CCPA compliance will have to be met by any company that uses or sells consumer data, however, there is a 12 month reprieve for businesses’ B2B (business-to-business) transactions.
