The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) is due to come into effect in January 2020 and applies to all for-profit businesses (including sole proprietors) who meet certain requirements, and that collect, purchase or sell the personal information about California consumers. The CCPA sets out the responsibilities of businesses in relation to : 1) the transparency under which they must operate with regard to personal information ; and 2) the rights they must give to California consumers and households with regard to their personal information.
Sage is actively working on its CCPA compliance strategy and has a project team, endorsed by the Sage Board, who are focused on Sage’s strategy and implementation of the CCPA.
In addition, Sage has robust governance procedures in place to manage preparations for the CCPA including a Data Governance Committee which is comprised of stakeholders from across the full Sage business to ensure Sage will be ready for the CCPA in January 2020. Sage will also be supporting customers–the small and medium sized businesses that drive all economies–and partners as they prepare their own businesses for the CCPA. Click here to learn more.
