The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) provides California residents with a broad range of data privacy rights and is one of the most comprehensive data protection laws in the United States.
Pursuant to the CCPA, California residents now have rights related to accessing personal data, requesting the deletion of personal data, receiving notice of data processing activities, and opting out from the sale of data.
California is one of the largest economies in the world. Is your business impacted by the CCPA?
The CCPA applies not only to California-based businesses, but to companies located around the world that do business with (and collect information on) California residents. The CCPA will be felt well beyond California’s borders. Here’s how Thompson Hine can help:
