If you are a for-profit-business that collects personal information of California residents, you may be required to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA.
The CCPA, was enacted into law by the California legislature on June 28, 2018 and becomes effective January 1, 2020. Enforcement is scheduled to begin in July of 2020.
The purpose of CCPA is to protect the personal information of people who live in California. CCPA gives California residents broad rights about how businesses collect, use, disclose, distribute, and sell their personal information.
