California: CCPA enters into effect

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ('CCPA') entered into effect on 1 January 2020. In particular, the CCPA provides certain rights to consumers, such as the rights of access and portability, to deletion, to opt-out, and to seek relief for breaches that involved their personal information. Furthermore, the CCPA will be enforced by the California Attorney General, who will be able to bring civil actions for alleged violations.

OneTrust DataGuidance produced, in collaboration, with the Future of Privacy Forum, a report ('the Report') comparing the CCPA with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR'), which was last updated in December 2019 to take into account the bills that amended the CCPA and were signed into law by the California Governor, Gavin Newsom, in October 2019.
