Special Alert: California Legislature passes several amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act and other privacy-related bills
Lawmakers in California last week amended the landmark California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA or the Act), which confers significant new privacy rights to California consumers concerning the collection, use, disclosure, and sale of their personal information by covered businesses, service providers, and third parties. While the amendments, which California Governor Gavin Newsom must sign by October 13, leave the majority of the consumer’s rights intact, certain provisions were clarified — including the definition of “personal information” — while other exemptions were added or clarified regarding the collection of certain data that have a bearing on financial services companies.
This Special Alert provides an overview and status update of CCPA-related and other privacy bills that were recently considered by the California legislature.
