Today’s Regulatory Mix: California Consumer Privacy Enforcement
California Consumer Privacy Enforcement
On July 1, 2020, the California Department of Justice began enforcing the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), groundbreaking legislation that provides consumers rights over their personal information.
“Enforcement of the CCPA marks an enormous step for privacy protection in California, particularly at this time after the COVID-19 pandemic moved so much of our lives online. We’re happy to announce that we are seeing great progress with our CCPA enforcement, but there’s more work to be done, ”announced Attorney General Bonta. “Plain and simple: Exercise your rights under the CCPA. Any Californian is empowered to opt out of the sale of their personal information online. Consumers can also join our enforcement efforts with our new Data Privacy Protection Tool that allows anyone to notice a business that appears to be out of compliance with CCPA.”
