What is the CCPA?
The CCPA, which entered into force on Jan. 1, 2020, is a California privacy law which extends new data privacy rights to California "consumers" (California residents), and requires businesses to provide consumers with thorough descriptions of their privacy practices. Such consumer rights include the right to access or delete personal information collected by a business and the right to opt out of a "sale" of personal information. However, transfers to "service providers" are not considered a "sale." Duda only discloses personal information to its service providers, as needed to provide, and improve its services.
Who does the CCPA affect?
The CCPA applies to organizations which either has (i) annual gross revenues in excess of twenty-five million dollars; or which annually buys, receives, sells, or shares for commercial purposes, alone or in combination, the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices; or which derives 50% or more of their annual revenues from "selling" (as this term is defined in the CCPA) consumers’ personal information.
Under the CCPA, 'Personal information' means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household, including information pertaining to a specific device (namely IoT enabled devices) provided it could be used to identify a particular consumer.
