CCPA Compliance Checklist: 4-Week Countdown
This week in our CCPA Compliance Checklist blog series, we’ll review the importance of maintaining detailed, ongoing records of consent.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is less than four weeks away from going into effect, and we’re getting prepared with a CCPA Compliance blog series.
Last week, we discussed #6 off our checklist about creating a toll-free number for consumer to make data requests over the phone. This week, we’ll review #7 about maintaining detailed, ongoing records of consent to demonstrate full compliance.
