What is the California Consumer Privacy Act?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), signed into law June 28, 2018, creates an array of consumer privacy rights and establishes a private right of action for security breaches and potential statutory damages of between $100 and $750 per consumer, per incident. Businesses subject to the CCPA must comply by Jan. 1, 2020, but the text of the law contains a 12-month “look-back” provision, which requires businesses to respond to consumer requests for personal information collected or sold within the past 12 months.
