What is the CCPA?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a privacy and consumer protection regulation applicable to residents of California (US) which is enforceable as of January 1st, 2020.
CCPA brings with it an array of new consumer data rights for residents of California and regulatory requirements aimed at giving these individuals more visibility into and control over how their personal data is used.
