Cookies, California and CCPA Compliance: What You Need to Know

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which took effect on January 1, 2020, is one of the most comprehensive and broadest data privacy laws in the U.S. This landmark legislation affects certain business collecting, storing, and selling information about California residents and sets the stage for countrywide privacy protections.

As a business, the CCPA requires you to be transparent in how you handle personal consumer data related to California residents. It offers more control to Californians over whether they want their personal information collected, what data is collected and how it is used.

As such, it’s essential that you develop and implement CCPA compliance procedures and programs, especially if you have a decentralized framework for managing personal information.
