Enforcement of the first robust data privacy law in the nation will commence on July 1, 2020.  The California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) was enacted in 2018 and established consumer rights to access to, deletion and sharing of personal information that is collected by businesses.  Read more about the CCPA in RLF’s newsletter “Is Your Company Ready for the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA)?” here.  
The California Attorney General submitted the final proposed regulations to the Office of Administrative Law for compliance with the CCPA.  After several revisions, public hearings, and more than a thousand public comments the proposed final regulations substantially differ from the initial draft.  The final proposed regulations provide some clarity and guidance regarding notices that businesses must provide to consumers,  require businesses to provide consumers with “timely notice” at or before the “point” of collection about the categories of personal information to be collected and the purposes for which that information will be used and prohibit businesses from requiring consumers to pay a direct or indirect fee for the verification of their request. These examples are just a sampling of the proposed regulations which are complex and less than straightforward.
Ensuring that your company understands and complies with the CCPA is crucial.  The Team at Renzulli Law Firm is working with clients around the world to ensure compliance with the CCPA.  If you have any questions about the CCPA and its impact on your business contact John F.
