California: Bill adding exception to CCPA opt-out right takes effect

Assembly Bill ('AB') 335, which amended Section 1798.145 of the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ('CCPA'), took effect on 1 January 2022, following its approval by the California Governor on 8 October 2021. In particular, AB 335, among other things, provides for an exemption under the CCPA with respect to the right to opt-out of the sale of vessel information or ownership information retained or shared between a vessel dealer and the vessel's manufacturer. This exemption applies if the information is shared for the purpose of effectuating, or in anticipation of effectuating, a vessel repair covered by a vessel warranty or recall. In this respect, AB 335 also defines vessel dealer, vessel information, and other relevant definitions.
