Understanding the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
With a main office in Sacramento, Angelo, Kilday & Kilduff Attorneys at Law is a California-based law firm that serves clients—including public agencies—in federal and state courts throughout the state. California has the most comprehensive data privacy law in the entire country. Indeed, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a law that took effect in the state in January 2020. It grants California residents enhanced control over the personal information that businesses collect about them. As a law firm located in the state that represents clients in California, we are committed to full compliance with the CCPA and all other applicable state and federal laws. Our firm is committed to data protection beyond the scope of the minimum mandatory legal requirements. Here is a general overview of some of the most notable things that users should understand about the CCPA:
Consumer Rights Under CCPA
The CCPA empowers California residents (California consumers) with a number of key rights related to their personal data. Most notably, these rights include:
- Right to Know: California residents can request information about the personal data that a regulated business collects, uses, and shares with third parties.
- Right to Delete: California residents have the right to request the deletion of their personal data held by businesses covered by the CCPA.
- Right to Opt-Out: California residents can generally opt out of the sale of their personal information to any third parties.
- Right to Non-Discrimination: Businesses cannot discriminate against California residents for exercising their CCPA rights.
To be clear, the CCPA does not cover every business in California. Instead, it applies to any for-profit entities—potentially including law firms—that collect personal data from consumers, do business in California, and satisfy at least one of the following two requirements:
- The entity has annual gross revenues in excess of $25 million; or
- The entity possesses the personal data of 50,000 or more consumers.
Notably, the CCPA also regulated covered businesses to implement reasonable security procedures and practices to protect personal data from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.
