CCPA & Global Privacy control

Introduction to CCPA

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them and the CCPA regulations provide guidance on how to implement the law. This landmark law secures new privacy rights for California consumers, including:

In November of 2020, California voters approved Proposition 24, the CPRA, which amended the CCPA and added new additional privacy protections that began on January 1, 2023. As of January 1, 2023, consumers have new rights in addition to those above, such as:

  • The right to correct inaccurate personal information that a business has about them; and

  • The right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information collected about them.

Businesses that are subject to the CCPA have several responsibilities, including responding to consumer requests to exercise these rights and giving consumers certain notices explaining their privacy practices. The CCPA applies to many businesses, including data brokers.

Changes for CCPA in 2023 due to CPRA

It is required under CPRA to retain a minimum amount of data that is only essential for the organization to fulfill its requirements. In addition, businesses should not keep data for longer than necessary; if they do, a justification must be presented, and they must notify the user. The criteria to Comply with CPRA remained almost the same as in CCPA, but with a slight change:

  1. Businesses should comply if they obtain a revenue of more than $25 million or gain 50% from selling personal data.

  2. Businesses should comply if they process data of more than 100,000 users instead of 50,000.

The California Privacy Protection Agency was created to enforce the CPRA starting July 1, 2023. It is responsible for raising awareness about data privacy and ensuring that consumers’ rights are protected while implementing penalties on non-compliant entities.

  3. Integrate in your website footer a link or a button to manage consent choices example of html code to integrate: <a href="#" onclick="tC.privacyCenter.showPrivacyCenter();return false">privacy center</a>

  4. Update your Privacy Policy: Businesses that sell personal information about California residents, or allow information to be collected on their websites or apps, need to provide information in their privacy policies about that collection or sale. The CA Attorney General has provided draft regulations on how and what information should be included in privacy policies, which you can find here.

What is Global Privacy Control ?

The Global Privacy Control is an initiative aimed at enabling users to easily exercise their privacy preferences across multiple websites and online services. It is designed to give users more control over how their personal information is collected, used, and shared online.

The GPC operates through a browser signal or an HTTP header that users can activate to indicate their privacy preferences. When a user enables the GPC signal in their browser, it sends a request to websites and online services, indicating that the user wishes to opt out of the sale or sharing of their personal information.
