With the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) going into effect on January 1, 2020, we’ve put together a CCPA Countdown Checklist for small-to-medium businesses. Over the next nine weeks, we’ll shed light on one of the items off of the CCPA checklist below. Last week, we provided an infographic that went through seven main things you need to know about the CCPA. This week, we’ll review #2 off of the checklist.

CCPA Compliance Checklist

Below is the check list we’ll review up until the end of the year.

  1. Understand what the CCPA is and if it applies to you
  2. Determine what data is collected from California consumers and for what purposes they are used 
  3. Inform visitors what personal information is collected when visiting your website  
  4. Offer an online form for consumers to access, request deletion, or opt out of sales of their personal information  
  5. Add a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link to your website’s homepage and privacy policy
  6. Create a toll-free number for consumers to make consumer rights’ requests over the phone  
  7. Maintain detailed, ongoing consent records for compliance   
  8. Develop a process to respond to consumer requests within 45 days from when the request was made  
  9. Obtain opt-in consent from children between ages 13-16 to sell their information; a parent of legal guardian required to opt in on behalf of children under 13 years old  
  10. Provide consumers who exercise their privacy rights the same products and service quality

Data Collection

Determine what data is collected from California consumers and what purposes they are used

Under the CCPA, businesses must inform consumers at or before the point of collection which categories of personal information will be collected and the purposes for which these categories will be used. Before informing consumers about the data collected, you must understand what trackers are being used on your website. This can be determined by using our powerful website scanning technology.
