Does the CCPA apply to my company?
The CCPA does not apply to every company. This applies to non-profit organizations that collect and sell consumer information or disclose personal information for business purposes. For companies to fall within the scope of the CCPA, they must meet one of the following criteria:
- The company has gross sales of at least $ 25 million
- The company has data from more than 50,000 consumers, households or devices
- The company earns more than half of its annual sales from selling personal data from consumers
What is personal information?
Personal data is information that can identify, relate to, describe or relate to a particular resident or household.
Are there any other details I should know?
The CCPA has undergone several changes since it entered into force on January 1, 2020. Some of the key changes include the following:
- Affected companies must register to sell information about minors under the age of 16
- There is no notification requirement if there is no direct collection of personal data
Will CCPA enforcement be postponed?
No, enforcement of the CCPA started on July 1st as planned. Many companies wondered if the California Attorney General would postpone CCPA enforcement in the face of COVID-19, but he remained firm on timely law enforcement.
