What is the CCPA?

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) enacted in 2018 and taking effect on Jan. 1, 2020, gives consumers in California additional rights and protections regarding how businesses may use their personal information. The CCPA imposes many obligations on businesses that are similar to those required by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
