Powered by the increase in consumer data and security breaches as well as apprehensions over privacy, the State of California has passed the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The new rights given to California consumers are similar to the rights provided in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The law went into effect on Jan. 1, 2020. The law gives Californians the following rights:
• Know what personal information is being collected about them.
• Know whether their personal information is sold or disclosed and to whom.
• Say no to the sale of personal information.
• Access their personal information.
• Equal service and price, even if they exercise their privacy rights.
