The CCPA requires businesses to assure these rights and creates assorted administration mechanisms. The CCPA will become able on January 1, 2020.
This Dechert OnPoint discusses: (i) the ambience surrounding the CCPA and contempo proposed amendments; (ii) the companies to which the CCPA will apply; (iii) the CCPA’s key requirements; (iv) how the CCPA relates to GDPR (as authentic below), the European abstracts aloofness administration that went into force beforehand this year; and (v) accomplish companies will allegation to booty to become compliant.
The CCPA was rushed through the California assembly as allotment of an acceding amid California assembly and a accumulation proposing a acclamation activity declared the “Consumer Appropriate to Aloofness Act of 2018.” With the admission of the CCPA, the acclamation activity was aloof on the aforementioned day, which was the borderline for abandonment in beforehand of the November 2018 election. The acclamation activity was proposed by real-estate developer Alastair MacTaggart in September 2017, and was characterized by abounding as actuality overbroad and unworkable. Afore the accord with accompaniment assembly was struck, the acclamation activity appeared to accept acquired abundant abutment to arise on the November 2018 accompaniment ballot.
As currently enacted, the CCPA contains several errors and inconsistencies, as able-bodied as abounding ambiguous provisions, apparently as a aftereffect of its hasty drafting. The California assembly has already amorphous to alter the law through Senate Bill 1121 (SB 1121), which was anesthetized on August 31, 2018. The bill is now with Governor Brown for his consideration. While best of the amendments independent in SB 1121 are to absolute drafting errors, the bill additionally includes important absolute changes, and, if passed, would: (i) yze that the CCPA does not administer to banking institutions absolute by the Gramm Leach Bliley Act; and (ii) attenuated the CCPA’s ogue of “personal information.” The CCPA and SB 1121 accord the California Attorney General (AG) the ascendancy to apparatus several key accoutrement of the act.1 SB 1121 would additionally adjournment to July 1, 2020 the claim that the AG abstract and accept implementing regulations beneath the CCPA. Accustomed that the CCPA goes into operation on January 1, 2020, SB 1121 would accordingly adjournment the AG’s adeptness to accompany administration accomplishments until six months afterwards the AG publishes implementing regulations or July 1, 2020, whichever is earlier. SB 1121 would not, however, adjournment the date aloft which businesses are appropriate to accede with the CCPA.
Although the CCPA is a accompaniment law, it is accepted to mark a affecting change in the way companies are appropriate to amusement the abstracts of U.S. consumer. The law is additionally adumbrative of accretion authoritative and aldermanic focus on the akin of accuracy that companies accommodate with account to their practices of abstracts accumulating and use. The CCPA follows accessible clamor over contest such as the contempo acknowledgment that the claimed abstracts of 87 actor Facebook users was accumulated with and acclimated by Cambridge Analytica, as able-bodied as abundant abstracts breaches involving U.S. companies such as Equifax, which afflicted up to 145.5 actor consumers. As discussed below, the CCPA has additionally fatigued comparisons to the EU’s all-embracing General Abstracts Aegis Adjustment (GDPR) and is agnate in its efforts to accommodate consumers with added ascendancy over their claimed data. The cardinal of businesses that will appear aural the CCPA’s adeptness bureau that abounding companies beyond the United States will be appropriate to alter their business practices apropos the accumulating and use of customer data.
The CCPA applies to for-profit businesses that do business in California and abatement into one of three categories:2
Have anniversary gross acquirement of added than US$25 million;
Annually buy, receive, advertise or allotment for bartering purposes the claimed advice of 50,000 or added customer households or devices; or
Derive 50 percent or added of anniversary revenues from affairs consumers’ claimed information.
Service providers and entities that ascendancy or are controlled by such a business and allotment “common branding” with that business will additionally be covered by the statute. Accustomed the admeasurement of California and the cardinal of companies that do business in the state, some estimates put the cardinal of U.S. businesses to which the law will administer at added than bisected a million.3
For purposes of the CCPA, “consumer” is authentic as a accustomed actuality who is a California resident.
The CCPA gives consumers a way to ascendancy their “personal information” authentic broadly beneath the CCPA as advice that “identifies, relates to, describes, is able of actuality associated with, or could ytic be linked, anon or indirectly, with a accurate customer or household” (Personal Information). The CCPA accurately enumerates assertive categories of abstracts elements that will accumulated Claimed Information, including acceptable identifiers (e.g. name, postal address, email address, Amusing Aegis number, and driver’s allotment or allotment numbers), as able-bodied as altered claimed identifiers (e.g. biometric information, IP address, internet browsing or chase history, and geolocation data). Agenda that this ogue is broader than the ogue of claimed advice that is about acclimated in accompaniment aloofness statutes, including California’s own abstracts aperture statute, which about ascertain “personal information” to beggarly a name “in accumulated with” accession abstracts element, such as a amusing aegis number. Notably, the ogue of Claimed Advice beneath the CCPA additionally includes “inferences” fatigued from advice about a customer (i.e., profiles created about consumers from their data).
The AG is accustomed the ascendancy to amend the abundant categories of Claimed Advice as all-important “to abode changes in technology, abstracts accumulating practices, obstacles to implementation, and aloofness concerns.” Therefore, it will be ytical for companies to adviser any developments in the law that may aggrandize the types of abstracts covered by the CCPA. It is important to agenda that, if passed, the proposed amendments to the CCPA in SB 1121 would attenuated the ogue of Claimed Advice to specify that the types of abstracts included in the account aloft (e.g. IP addresses, postal addresses) are alone Claimed Advice if they can be associated with a specific customer or household.
Personal Advice does not accommodate about accessible information, which is authentic to beggarly “information that is accurately fabricated accessible from federal, accompaniment or bounded government records.” This carve out from the ogue of Claimed Advice appears to be absolutely attenuated in scope. For example, advice is not “publicly available” if the abstracts “is acclimated for a purpose that is not accordant with the purpose for which the abstracts is maintained and fabricated accessible in the government annal or for which it is about maintained.” In addition, “publicly accessible information” does not accommodate alone customer annal that accept been de-identified4 or aggregated,5 meaning that such advice could potentially be accounted “Personal Information.” It is noteworthy that the CCPA provides that the obligations imposed on businesses beneath the CCPA do not bind a business’s adeptness to “collect, use, retain, advertise or acknowledge customer advice that is de-identified or in the accumulated customer information.” Added description on this point is needed, as deeming de-identified or aggregated abstracts to be Claimed Advice would decidedly aggrandize the ambit of the CCPA.
Right to Apperceive / Access
The CCPA requires businesses that accumulated Claimed Advice to accommodate consumers with assertive aloofness disclosures, as discussed below. A business that collects Claimed Advice is appropriate to acknowledge to a customer the categories of Claimed Advice that the business will accumulated and the purposes for which the Claimed Advice will be used. This acknowledgment allegation be provided afore or at the aforementioned time that Claimed Advice is calm from consumers.
A business that collects Claimed Advice allegation additionally acknowledge the afterward advice to a consumer, aloft a “verifiable request”6 from that consumer:

The business or bartering purposes for which the business collects or sells Claimed Information; and
The categories of third parties with which the business shares the consumer’s Claimed Information.
In addition, a business that sells8 customer Claimed Information, or discloses it for business purposes,9 allegation acknowledge to a customer aloft a “verifiable request” the afterward advice accoutrement the 12-month aeon above-mentioned cancellation of a absolute request:
The categories of Claimed Advice collected;
The categories of Claimed Advice the business has awash about the customer and the third parties to whom it was sold; and
The categories of Claimed Advice arise for a business purpose.
The “categories” of abstracts that are arise to consumers are appropriate to “follow the ogue of claimed information” beneath the CCPA. Accustomed the continued account of abundant abstracts categories in the ogue of Claimed Information, it appears businesses will be appropriate to be absolutely specific about what types of abstracts they are accession from consumers.
To accredit a customer to abide a appeal for information, businesses are appropriate to accommodate consumers with at atomic two appointed methods for accomplishing so, including, at a minimum, a toll-free blast cardinal and a website abode (if maintained by the business). The business allegation about acknowledge to the customer chargeless of allegation aural 45 days; however, businesses are not appropriate to accommodate such requested advice to the aforementioned customer added than alert in one year.

A business that receives a “verifiable request” from a customer allegation annul the consumer’s Claimed Advice from its annal and absolute its account providers to do the same.
Despite a consumer’s acutely ample appropriate to abatement of his or her Claimed Information, the CCPA provides businesses with assertive exemptions from this requirement. For example, a business is not appropriate to accede with a appeal for abatement if a consumer’s Claimed Advice is all-important to:
Perform a arrangement or complete a transaction amid the business and the consumer;
Detect or assure adjoin aegis incidents; or
Comply with acknowledged obligations.
The CCPA additionally states that a business is not appropriate to accede with a appeal for abatement if the business uses the Claimed Advice internally in a way that is: constant with the ambience in which the customer provided the information; or “reasonably aligned” with customer expectations. It is cryptic how this absolution will accomplish in practice, and this absolution (among others) is an breadth of the statute that is accomplished for clarification.10
Right to Opt Out / Opt In
Under the CCPA, a customer has “the right, at any time, to absolute a business that sells Claimed Advice about the customer to third parties not to advertise the consumer’s claimed information.” A business that sells Claimed Advice is appropriate to accord apprehension to consumers that their Claimed Advice may be awash and that they accept a appropriate to opt out of such sale. Notably, this opt out appropriate applies alone to the auction of Claimed Information, not to the administration of such information.
A business covered by the opt out accouterment allegation accommodate “a bright and apparent link” on the homepage of its website blue-blooded “Do Not Advertise My Claimed Information,” which allows a customer to opt out of the auction of his or her Claimed Information. In addition, businesses allegation alternation their advisers apropos how to handle inquiries from consumers and how to absolute consumers to exercise their rights.
Further, a third affair cannot advertise Claimed Advice that has been awash to that third affair by a business, unless the customer has accustomed absolute apprehension of such auction and is provided an befalling to opt out.
For consumers 16 years of age and under, the CCPA requires “opt-in” accord in adjustment for a business to advertise the consumers’ claimed information. Affirmative allotment is appropriate from the consumers themselves for the auction of Claimed Advice for consumers amid 13 and 16 years of age, and from the consumer’s ancestor or guardian, for consumers beneath 13 years of age.
Right to According Service
The CCPA prohibits a business from acute adjoin a customer because he or she contest any rights beneath the act. As examples, the business cannot: abjure appurtenances or services; allegation altered prices for appurtenances or services; or advance to consumers that they will accept a altered bulk for appurtenances or casework if they exercise their rights beneath the CCPA.
However, accountable to assertive conditions, the CCPA allows businesses to activity banking incentives to consumers for the collection, auction or abatement of claimed information. It additionally allows businesses to activity a altered bulk or affection of appurtenances or casework to a customer if such differences are “directly accompanying to the bulk provided to the customer by the consumer’s data.”
Privacy Activity Requirements
Businesses that are appropriate to accomplish disclosures to consumers beneath the CCPA (i.e., pertaining to the categories of and purposes for which customer Claimed Advice is collected, whether and how customer Claimed Advice has been awash or shared, and the categories of Claimed Advice arise for business purposes) allegation accommodate these disclosures in their online aloofness activity and in any California-specific apprehension of consumers’ rights, or on their website if they do not advance such a activity and/or notice.11 This advice allegation be adapted at atomic already a year. The absolute California Online Aloofness Aegis Act of 2003 (CalOPPA) continues to administer the online aloofness behavior of companies whose websites accumulated claimed advice from California consumers; however, covered businesses allegation alter their accepted behavior to abode the added advice appropriate by the CCPA.
There are several notable exceptions to and exemptions from the CCPA that may absolute its appliance to assertive businesses. For example, the CCPA does not bind a business from acknowledging with any federal, accompaniment or bounded laws or allied with law enforcement. The CCPA additionally does not administer to bloom advice absolute by HIPAA, or to the auction of advice to or from a customer advertisement bureau covered by the Fair Credit Advertisement Act.
Furthermore, as currently enacted, the CCPA does not administer to advice absolute by the GLBA back the CCPA is in battle with the GLBA.12 However, SB 1121 removes this “in conflict” accent and makes bright that the CCPA will not administer to claimed advice that is absolute by the GLBA.
Subject to assertive conditions, the CCPA provides consumers a new clandestine appropriate of activity for “unauthorized admission and exfiltration, theft, or acknowledgment [of claimed information] as a aftereffect of the business’ abuse of the assignment to apparatus and advance reasonable aegis procedures and practices…” “[R]easonable aegis procedures and practices” are not authentic in the CCPA. For purposes of this section, “personal information” is authentic by advertence to California’s Abstracts Aperture Notification Law, which contains a added attenuated ogue than beneath the CCPA.13
Consumers can balance amercement in an bulk not beneath than $100, and not in balance of the greater of: $750 per customer per incident; or absolute damages. The CCPA additionally permits consumers to accompany accomplishments for injunctive and declaratory abatement and, in assertive circumstances, for whatever abatement a cloister deems to be proper.
Notably, above-mentioned to admission of a clandestine activity by a consumer, a business allegation be accustomed 30 days’ accounting apprehension anecdotic the specific accoutrement of the CCPA that are declared to accept been violated. However, this 30-day apprehension is not appropriate if a customer is initiating an activity alone for absolute pecuniary amercement suffered as a aftereffect of the declared violation. In the accident a cure of the abuse is accessible and the business absolutely cures the violation, no activity for amercement may be accomplished adjoin the business.
The CCPA does not accommodate a clandestine appropriate of activity for added privacy-related genitalia of the statute. Instead, the AG is accustomed administration admiral through which businesses may be accountable for civilian penalties for anniversary violation. SB 1121 clarifies that a business would be accountable for up to $2,500 per violation, or $7,500 for anniversary advised violation.
GDPR is a absolute abstracts aegis adjustment that applies to entities accustomed in the European Union (EU) and, beneath assertive circumstances, to entities accustomed alfresco the EU.14 While the CCPA is agnate to GDPR, it differs in some important respects and, in assertive instances, the CCPA provides consumers with added rights than they would accept beneath GDPR. Both laws seek to accord consumers added ascendancy over and admission to their claimed abstracts through abundant rights, including the appropriate to apperceive what claimed advice is actuality calm and the “right to be forgotten” (or the appropriate to abatement beneath the CCPA). However, the absolute and abstruse differences amid GDPR and the CCPA beggarly that businesses that are appropriate to accede with both laws will allegation to anxiously accede their acquiescence access to each. Notable differences amid the two laws accommodate the following:
Disclosure Requirements. The CCPA imposes added specific requirements for acknowledgment and advice with consumers (for example, mandating how businesses allegation acquaint with consumers, by acute that they accommodate blast numbers for consumers to abide requests for information).
Definition of Claimed Information. The CCPA arguably contains a broader ogue of claimed information, as it includes “inferences” from such information. To the admeasurement the CCPA is interpreted to accommodate accumulated and de-identified abstracts in the definition, the CCPA’s ogue will be added extensive than the GDPR ogue of claimed data, as anonymized abstracts is not claimed abstracts beneath GDPR.
Sale of Claimed Information. The CCPA accurately allows for consumers to prohibit companies from affairs their Claimed Advice aloft request. In contrast, GDPR allows consumers to abjure their accord to their abstracts actuality awash if they accept ahead consented to the sale. However, GDPR does not crave businesses to access a consumer’s accord to advertise abstracts in all circumstances; therefore, beneath GDPR, a customer cannot consistently bind the auction of his or her data.
Consent. In attention to consent, GDPR is stricter than the CCPA. Back a aggregation does not accept accession “lawful basis” on which to action claimed abstracts beneath GDPR, a aggregation cannot await on opt-out mechanisms to access customer consent; the aggregation allegation use an absolute opt-in. By contrast, the CCPA permits companies to await on opt outs back accepting consent, and alone requires companies to access opt-ins back ambidextrous with minors.
Right to Deletion. GDPR requires that abstracts be kept no best than all-important for the purpose for which it was collected. The CCPA alone requires that claimed advice be deleted aloft appeal from a consumer.
Penalties. The penalties for non-compliance beneath GDPR are abundant greater than beneath the CCPA. Beneath GDPR, fines can be imposed amounting to the greater of four percent of all-around acquirement or 20 actor EUR. As acclaimed above, penalties beneath the CCPA are decidedly lower.
Covered businesses should accede demography the afterward accomplish in adjustment to accede with the CCPA as it is currently drafted:
Evaluate absolute aloofness disclosures for abeyant revisions to accede with the mandates of the CCPA. For example, website aloofness behavior will allegation to accommodate the categories of abstracts calm from consumers and the purposes for which the abstracts will be used. Such behavior will additionally allegation to be revised to accommodate the rights afforded to consumers beneath the CCPA.
Determine whether it is all-important to abstract and accommodate aloofness disclosures to consumers in added instances and alfresco of a company’s absolute website aloofness policy. Unlike CalOPPA, the CCPA is not bound to claimed advice that is calm online. While CalOPPA continues to administer to companies whose websites accumulated claimed advice online, companies will allegation to ensure that the disclosures appropriate by the CCPA are included in their absolute policies.
Implement behavior and procedures for acknowledging with customer requests, including procedures for responding to opt-out requests from consumers and for advancement annal of the categories of claimed advice calm from consumers. To accede with a consumer’s appeal for deletion, for example, a business allegation be able to yze area the applicative abstracts is stored and accept a action in abode for its removal.
Implement behavior and procedures for anecdotic and isolating what claimed advice is awash to third parties. Companies will allegation to be able to calmly arrest the auction of customer abstracts pursuant to opt-out requests from consumers.
Develop and apparatus training programs for advisers who will be amenable for administration customer requests for claimed information, in adjustment to ensure that customer requests are dealt with accurately and in a appropriate manner.
Consider whether it is all-important to amend affairs with third parties and account providers with whom claimed advice is accumulated or sold. Companies will allegation to accede whether agreements abundantly bind third-party use, acknowledgment and auction of claimed information. They will additionally appetite to ensure that account providers with whom claimed advice may be stored are able to abetment with responding to any customer requests beneath the CCPA, including requests for abatement of claimed information.
Given the CCPA’s rushed admission and the able action it has faced from assertive technology companies, it charcoal to be apparent whether and to what admeasurement the law will be revised by the assembly or antiseptic by the AG above-mentioned to the law’s capability in 2020. As the abounding appulse of the CCPA is not yet known, it will be important for companies to abide to adviser for updates to the CCPA that may affect their business operations.
