CCPA: California Consumer Privacy Act

The state of California introduced the CCPA act on the 1st of January, 2020 to protect consumers’ personal information. This act allows consumers to investigate what information a business collects about them and how the information is used or shared. A consumer can ask a company to delete or alter their information under Section 1 (AB 1146), if they feel it will have an adverse effect or their privacy will be hindered. For example, a customer may not want his photo to be shared after a hair transplant. In order to comply with the CCPA, businesses should take the following steps: a) First, find out if the CCPA applies to your business. b) Update the privacy policy data as per the CCPA. c) Provide an opt-in option for prior consent of the users to sell their information and from parents for users who are in the under-age category. d) Provide the option ‘Do not sell my data’ for users to opt out from selling their information.
