CCPA Compliance Checklist: Three Week Countdown – Maintaining Records of Consent
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is less than three weeks away from going into effect, and we’re getting prepared with our CCPA Compliance Checklist blog series. Last week, we discussed how it’s important to create a toll-free number for consumers to make data requests over the phone. This week, we’ll cover the importance of maintaining detailed, ongoing records of consent to demonstrate full compliance.
CCPA Compliance Checklist
- Understand what the CCPA is and if it applies to you
- Determine what data is collected from California consumers and for what purposes they are used
- Inform visitors what personal information is collected when visiting your website
- Offer an online form for consumers to access, request deletion, or opt-out of sales of their personal information
- Add a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link to our website’s homepage and any page that collects personal data
- Create a toll-free number for consumers to make consumer rights’ requests over the phone
- Maintain detailed, ongoing consent records for compliance
- Develop a process to respond to consumer requests within 45 days from when the request was made
- Obtain opt-in consent from children between ages 13-16 to sell their information; a parent or legal guardian required to opt-in on behalf of children under 13 years old
- Provide consumers who exercise their privacy rights the same products and service quality
