In today’s digital age, where everything you share online is being processed and all your data is being recorded it becomes utmost important to have formal regulations in place for businesses to ensure data security & privacy of their customers.

Considering the ever-growing size of the sensitive data, incidents of data breaches have taken the front seat. And, in order to protect the consumers’ personal information from these incidents, a set of stringent rules and regulations have been introduced as California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to protect the data of golden state’s consumers as well as residents. This act came in effect on January 1st, 2020 and it will likely to be enforced from July 1st, 2020 onwards or six months after the publication of the final regulation.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a bill that empowers the residents of California, United States to have enhanced privacy rights & consumer protection. The CCPA grants Californians’ rights to have access & delete the data that companies collect about them and allows them to opt out of their data being sold.

Compared to GDPR, CCPA demands the businesses to be more transparent which gives the consumer more visibility in understanding of how & why their data is being collected and provides them with better control on their data. The unique requirement of CCPA for providing a clear and noticeable link on business website stating “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” enables consumers to opt-out of the sale of their personal information to third parties.

When does CCPA apply to a business?

CCPA applies to all profit-oriented businesses that collect, share or sell personal data of California consumers and

  • whose annual gross revenues is more than $25 million or
  • holds personal information of 50,000 or more consumers/devices or
  • earns more than half of its annual revenue from selling consumer personal information

What if you don’t comply to CCPA?

If a business fails to address an alleged violation within 30 days of non-compliance notification, it can bring penalty of up to $2,500 per violation (Calculated on a per-capita basis. For ex: If a violation affects 1000 users, damages could rise to $25,00,000). For Intentional violations, maximum civil penalty of up to $7,500 for each violation of the CCPA can be charged.
