California Consumer Privacy Act

Preparing for changes in how personal information is managed within your business

What is the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) ?

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. 

Our promise to you
