California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Checklist
Download our CCPA checklist PDF to start to get an understanding of what is involved in CCPA compliance.
The CCPA can apply to businesses located outside California that collect or sell personal information of California residents. Businesses that violate the CCPA can face civil penalties in actions brought by the California Attorney General ranging from $2,500 for each non-intentional violation and up to $7,500 for each intentional violation. In addition, in some cases California consumers may be authorized to bring individual or class action lawsuits against violators.
For these reasons, businesses caught up in the CCPA should understand their CCPA obligations and make a plan to bring their businesses into compliance by 2020.
This is one of a series of alerts related to the California Consumer Privacy Protection Act, which goes into effect on January 1, 2020.
