Do You Have Offices In California?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) represents the most significant change to American data protection laws in many years. The bill was passed as an amendment to a part of the California Civil Code.
The CCPA is a state statute intended to enhance privacy rights and consumer protection for residents of the state of California. Under CCPA, California residents have the right to know which data companies store of them and with which third parties that data is shared. In addition, the CCPA allows consumers to sue companies if the privacy guidelines are violated, even if there is no breach. Abacode provides consulting services to assist companies on complying with the CCPA requirements.
- Right to Know: Businesses must disclose the what data is being collected/sold, how it’s being collected/sold, and for what reason upon request.
- Right to Delete: Businesses must delete any personal information upon request.
- Right to Opt-Out of Sale: Businesses must allow residents to opt out of the sale of their data and must not sell the personal information of a consumer under 16 years of age without authorization.
- Right to Non-Discrimination: Businesses must not discriminate against consumers who choose to exercise any of the above. For example, businesses can’t deny services or charge different rates because a consumer does not want their information being shared.
