What is the California Consumer Privacy Act and What Does it Mean?

As we enter a new decade, many of us reflect on recent years to see how many things can change in just a short amount of time. In fact, diving further into a technologically driven age, most of our important information is now stored in our phones and computers. In order to help protect people’s information, states such as California have come forward to create additional privacy laws. So, just what is the California Consumer Privacy Act and what does it mean?

First introduced back in January of 2018 and then passed later that year in June, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) went into effect at the beginning of this year. This bill was put into place to help protect the privacy of information for consumers living in California. So, what exactly does this mean for California residents? Well, now they will be able to be given the rights to:

  • Know what personal data is being collected about them.
  • Know whether their personal data is sold or disclosed and to whom.
  • Say no to the sale of personal data.
  • Access their personal data.
  • Request a business to delete any personal information about a consumer collected from that consumer.
  • Not be discriminated against for exercising their privacy rights.
