In spite of the efforts of many businesses to get the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) compliance date pushed out due to Covid-19 and related economic and logistical concerns, the July 1 date remains in place. In fact, the California attorney general stated, “Businesses have had since January 1 to comply with the law, and we are committed to enforcing it starting July 1.”
So. If you are based in, or do business in, CA and you haven’t already made yourselves ready, you’ve got work to do, and fast!
We have had discussions with a number of our customers and have been able to help them map out practical steps to take in order to be compliant with the new CCPA landscape. Below are a few ideas to help get started or finish you to do list:
These days we all work with third-party provider agreements and must amend those docs to ensure that they limit the provider’s use of personal information as prescribed in the CCPA. This is a vital step, because without a CCPA-compliant agreement, the disclosure of personal information to a third-party provider could look like a sale of personal information that triggers the consumer’s opt-out right.
We hope all of you the best of luck and let us know if you need additional information or help.
