BDO Knows California Consumer Privacy Act
May 15, 2019
In the ever-evolving privacy landscape, the E.U.’s General Data Protection Regulation and many other country laws were only the beginning. The new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which goes into effect on January 1, 2020, builds upon existing privacy law principles that prohibit unlawful, opaque, and limitless capture and processing of personal data. Consumers’ rights will be extended to allow requests to businesses to disclose the categories and specific pieces of personal information that the business collects about the consumer, the categories of sources from which that information is collected, the business purposes for collecting or selling the information, and the categories of third parties with which the information is shared.
