What is CCPA?

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018 was created to provide consumers with more control over their personal information and to regulate how businesses handle this information. The CCPA provides the following rights to consumers:

  • The right to know what personal information is being collected about them, and how it is being used and shared;
  • The right to request the deletion of personal information that has been collected (with some exceptions);
  • The right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of their personal information; and
  • The right to non-discrimination for exercising their CCPA rights.

In addition to the above, consumers also have new rights as of January 2023:

  • The right to correct any inaccurate personal information held by a business;
  • The right to limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information.

Businesses subject to the CCPA have several responsibilities, including responding to consumer requests and providing specific notices outlining their privacy practices. The CCPA applies to many businesses, including data brokers.
