Complying with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The growing role of technology and data in consumers’ everyday lives has increased the amount of personal information they share with businesses. As a result, companies are now aware of the consumers’ personal details such as their family backgrounds, health and financial information, location, and even biometric profiles. Unauthorized access to such personal information can lead to disastrous consequences such as financial fraud, reputational damage, and even physical damage.
California is one of the world leaders in developing new technologies and related industries. Many businesses collect personal information from Californian consumers. The collection of personal data with no accountability has restricted the Californians’ ability to protect and safeguard their privacy.
CCPA and Seclore
Considered one of the strictest privacy laws in the United States, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) allows California residents to control how businesses process their personal information. The primary purpose of the CCPA is to give Californians more control over their personal information by granting them many fundamental rights:
- Know what personal information about them is being collected and whether it is sold, and to whom.
- Request for their personal data to be deleted and refuse the sale of their personal information.
- Exercise their rights and still receive fair services from the business.
