The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a complicated, confusing and comprehensive state privacy law coming into effect on January 1, 2020 that will impact most marketing research and data analytics companies and departments, and cover almost all consumer data, online or otherwise.
CCPA will require extensive disclosure about data collection, use and sharing, and consumer rights to data access, deletion and opt out (from data sharing/sale). It will also further expand penalties for data security breaches, punishable by private lawsuits. The Attorney General will have wide latitude to enforce the law.
