California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a law aimed at strengthening privacy rights and safeguarding consumers in California, similar to the GDPR in Europe. It was enacted by the California State Legislature and signed into law on June 28, 2018, and became effective on January 1, 2020. 

Under the CCPA, companies that sell personal information must include a noticeable link on their website labeled “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information.” It grants consumers the right to know what personal information is being collected, its purpose, and who it’s shared with. CCPA prohibits businesses from selling personal information of individuals under 16 years old unless explicit consent is given.
