What are the CCPA regulations?
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them and the CCPA regulations provide guidance on how to implement the law. This landmark law secures new privacy rights for California consumers, including:
- The right to know about the personal information a business collects about them and how it is used and shared;
- The right to delete personal information collected from them (with some exceptions);
- The right to opt out of the sale of their personal information; and
- The right to non-discrimination for exercising their CCPA rights.
The regulations went into effect on August 14, 2020. Additional amendments to the regulations went into effect on March 15, 2021.
Why is the CCPA essential?
For California residents who exercise these rights, the CCPA specifies a non-discrimination clause, meaning that everyone is accessible to the same services and price, regardless of whether they allow organizations to sell their data or not.
Intended to enhance consumer protection and data privacy rights, The CCPA’s goal is to equip consumers with increased knowledge of what happens with their personal data. It aims to provide data transparency and accountability, allowing consumers to see their digital footprint and prevent the selling of their personal information.
Who and what falls under the purview of the CCPA?
Only California residents have rights under the CCPA. A California resident is a natural person (as opposed to a corporation or other business entity) who resides in California, even if the person is temporarily outside of the state.
Personal information (under the CCPA regulations) is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with you or your household and which is not in the public domain. For example, it could include your name, social security number, personal email address, records of products purchased, internet browsing history, geolocation data, fingerprints, and inferences from other personal information that could create a profile about your preferences and characteristics.
The CCPA seeks to protect California residents from the risks of unauthorized disclosure of personal information including identity theft, destruction of property, and reputational damage. In addition, organizations that must follow CCPA compliance are also required to maintain reasonable security practices in order to protect consumer data.
Under the CCPA, only publicly available data is not considered personal information.
