California Consumer Data Privacy Act (CCPA)

A statewide data privacy law, effective from January 1, 2020, that reinforced individuals’ rights by strengthening company laws around the use of personal information. CCPA is said to be a model of GDPR and is sometimes called the “GDPR light”. However, some don’t agree with this, for they can be different in terms of who it applies to and how they define certain terms.

Consumers have rights under the CCPA, including a right to information about data collection, a right to be forgotten, and the ability to opt out of having their data sold (opt-in for minors).
