The California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA, is a landmark data privacy law that came into effect on January 01, 2020. The CCPA is applicable to organizations that do business in California and collect and store personal information of the residents of the state. Personal Information under CCPA includes unique personal identifier, online identifier, biometric data, email address, IP address and other sensitive information of the residents.
Under the CCPA, residents of California have the right to: access personal information organizations store; request organizations to delete their personal data; and request organizations to not sell their personal data. The CCPA creates enormous liability for organizations that do not comply with the law with fines of up to $7500 for every violation.
The CCPA legislation is broad and can be difficult to interpret. It requires a significant amount of time and energy to understand your obligations against CCPA in order to maintain compliance with the law.
