About the CCPA
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) - which came into effect on Jan 1st, 2020 - aims to protect the consumer rights of California residents. The act serves to encourage stronger privacy for consumers and promote greater transparency for companies who have an online presence in the state.
