California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA): Are you ready
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), a data protection law meant to provide California consumers more control over their personal information will soon be effective on January 1, 2020.The law imposes obligations on businesses that collect and process personal information on California consumers to disclose information collection, sharing, sale, and use practices, and to give those consumers rights to access, delete, and restrict certain uses of personal information, among other rights. The broad scope of the law means that businesses outside of California still may be required to comply if they process personal data on California consumers.
With the effective date of the new law quickly approaching, McDonald Hopkins' Christine Czuprynski, Joelle Dvir, and Amanda Martin will be discussing:
Key distinctions between CCPA and GDPR
Scope of the CCPA's impact
Key definitions of "personal information" and "consumer"
Consumer rights of access and deletion
