Frameworks and Regulations We Support

Frequently Asked Questions

What is CCPA?

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) is a Californian privacy law that gives consumers more control over their personal information that businesses collect about them, and the CCPA regulations provide guidance on how to implement the law. As an addendum to the CCPA, the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) was added as an addendum to the CCPA in late 2020 and goes into effect in January 2023.

How is CCPA enforced?

The CCPA was originally enforced by the California Office of the Attorney General (OAG). The CPRA moves this authority to the newly formed California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) who will be responsible for the investigation, enforcement, and rulemaking powers.

What is CCPA trying to achieve?

CCPA’s 6 Articles form the ground rules for the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information, as well as for providing access to personal information. They give individuals control over how their personal information is handled in the private sector.

What is the penalty for noncompliance with CCPA?

CCPA’s fines for noncompliance include:

  • Up to but not more than $2,500 for each violation
  • $7,500 for each intentional violation or violations involving minors
Who needs to comply with CCPA?

Under the CCPA, an organization can classify as a business if they are a legal entity that is operated for profit, involves the collection of California consumers’ personal information (PI), determines the purposes and means of processing PI, and satisfies one or more of the following conditions:

  1. Has an annual gross revenue of over $25 million in the preceding calendar year
  2. Alone, or in combination, annually buys, sells, or shares the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers or households
  3. Derives 50% or more of its annual revenue from selling consumers’ personal information

Organizations do not need to reside or have a physical presence in California to be legally obligated to follow the requirements of CCPA.

What are the differences between CCPA and GDPR?
  • he CCPA applies only to California residents and organizations doing business in California. In contrast, the GDPR applies to any organization that processes the personal data of European citizens and residents no matter where they’re located.
  • The CCPA uses opt-out as the basis for consent. The GDPR, on the other hand, requires opt-in.
  • The CCPA requires certain privacy notices (such as “notice at collection” and a privacy policy). But it does not require the kind of “cookie banner” that many businesses use on their website for GDPR compliance.
  • The CCPA’s penalties cap at $7,500 per record for each intentional violation ($2,500 for each unintentional violation). The GDPR’s penalty caps at 4 percent of the company’s annual revenue, or $21 million – whichever is greater.
  • The CCPA may exclude some small businesses. The GDPR includes all businesses no matter the size.
