California Privacy Rights
Following the passage of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”), the State of California passed The California Consumer Protection Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) which gives California residents unparalleled data privacy rights. The law took effect on January 1, 2020. The law applies to businesses that collect and sell consumer “personal information” or discloses personal data for a business purpose. CCPA gives California residents/consumers the right and control over the use of their personal information collected by businesses.

- CCPA does not apply to not-for-profit businesses or government agencies.
