California passed the Californian Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in 2018. It’s the United States’ strictest privacy law.
The CCPA creates new consumer rights. It imposes considerable business responsibilities and obligations.
The CCPA’s impact extends far beyond California. It affects many businesses located elsewhere. That’s if they collect the personal data of Californian residents.
