What is CCPA?

What is CCPA and what does it cover?

    Under the CCPA, consumers are afforded new privacy rights regarding their personal information that companies, and websites collect. Some of the new privacy rights include:

    • The right to opt-out of sale of personal information. Consumers can direct a business that sells personal information to stop selling that information

    • The right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared, or sold. That includes both the categories and specific pieces of personal information

    • The right to delete personal information that is held by businesses and, by extension, a business's service provider

    • The right to non-discrimination in terms of price or service when a consumer exercises a privacy right under CCPA

Which companies must comply with CCPA?

    Companies that serve California residents must comply with the CCPA if they satisfy one or more of the following categories:

    • They have at least $25 million in annual gross revenue

    • They buy, sell, receive, or share alone or in combination the personal information of 50,000 or more, households, consumers, or devices; or
