The California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA): An implementation and compliance guide (Paperback)
The CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) is a data privacy law that took effect on January 1, 2020. It applied to businesses that collect California residents' personal information, and its privacy requirements are similar to those of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
On May 4, 2020, Californians for Consumer Privacy (an advocacy group, founded by Alistair MacTaggart) announced that it had collected more than 900,000 signatures to qualify the CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act) for the November 2020 ballot. Also known as 'CCPA 2.0', the CPRA enhances privacy protections established by the CCPA and builds on consumer rights.
CPRA effectively replaces the CCPA and bolsters privacy protections for California consumers. While many elements of the two laws are similar, there are some striking differences that could impact CPRA implementation plans, including:
- Limiting deletion rights that apply to unstructured data
- A new right to data minimization with retention requirements related to personal data
- New definitions and obligations related to cross-context behavioral advertising
- Amending breach liability to include an email address in combination with a password or security question
- Establishing a new regulatory enforcement body: the California Privacy Protection Agency
Organizations that fail to comply with the CPRA's requirements are subject to civil penalties of up to $7,500 and a civil suit that gives every affected consumer the right to seek between $100 and $750 in damages per incident, or actual damages if higher.
