California Consumer Privacy Act

CCPA FAQ

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a comprehensive new consumer protection law that took effect on January 1, 2020.
The CCPA is different than current U.S. privacy legislation as the CCPA definition of personal information  is very broad and includes new data elements to be considered personal information that is not covered under existing  U.S. privacy laws.  Additionly,  the CCPA specifically guarantees California consumers privacy rights that can create significant compliance and operational responsibilities for businesses covered by CCPA.
The CCPA applies to any business in the world if:

1.  They collect data personal data of California residents
2.  They (or parent company or subsidiary) exceed at least one of the following three thresholds:
      1.  Annual gross revenues of at least $25 million
      2.  Obtains personal information of at least 50,000 California residents, households and /or devices per year
      3.  At least 50% of their annual revenue is generated from selling California residents personal information

A California resident is defined by California law as any person who:
-  Is in California for other than a temporary or transitory purpose
-  Is domiciled in California, but is outside the State for temporary or transitory purposes

There are 2 potential penalties for non-compliance.  The CCPA allows for both public and private actions. The State of California  can bring civil penalties ranging between $2500 to $7500 for each CCPA violation. While this penalty may not seem significant, it is important to understand this is a per user penalty  so that one violation involving 3,000 consumers actually counts as 3,000 violations and could potentially result in millions of dollars in penalties.

The CCPA also allows for private action from consumers in the form of private legal action against companies for data breaches resulting in privacy violations and recovering anything between $100 and $750 per consumer per incident or the  actual damages (whichever is greater). 

Furthermore, if it is found  that a covered company did not provide reasonable CCPA data security measures to protect the consumers’ personal and private information, these unintentional CCPA violations can also result in fines.
Depending on your business size and activities update public privacy notices, update internal policies and procedures, implement mechanisms to facilitate consumer requests, and update vendor and third party contracts.
