A wide-ranging privacy law that went into effect on January 1st, 2020. It regulates how businesses collect, use, and disclose just about any kind of information that relates to an individual. It covers any business that earns $25 million in revenue per year overall, or sells 50,000 consumer records per year, or derives 50% of its annual revenue from selling personal information. The CCPA requires businesses to implement new policies and procedures to ensure the protection of personal information for Californian residents. What’s more, the law expands what’s considered “personal information” and includes data elements not previously considered personal information under any U.S. law. It also gives California residents some new rights to make data requests to businesses that handle their data.
