CCPA Amendments Signed into Law
Last Friday, October 11, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed five bills into law under the CCPA. With less than three months before the CCPA goes into effect, businesses will now need to take into account these amendments as they continue their compliance efforts.
This comes shortly after the Attorney General drafted regulations on October 10 who is planning to hold a public hearing December 6, 2019 in four California cities to hear comments. Those interested will have an opportunity to submit comments regarding the proposed CCPA regulations at the public hearings, by mail, or by email.
Below are the summaries of the amendments signed by the governor.
AB 1564 – Right to Delete
Under CCPA, businesses need to provide at minimum two methods for consumers to submit information and deletion requests, which includes a toll-free phone number and email address at the very least.
AB 25 – Employee Data
The CCPA does not apply to personal information collected from job applicants, contractors or employees. The legislature will revisit the issue January 1, 2021.
AB 874 – Aggregated Consumer Information
