Leading up to the CCPA’s effective date, two important amendments were passed which partially excluded employee information and business-to-business (B2B) information from the stringent coverage of the CCPA. The California Legislature recently passed a bill to extend these provisions another year.
Last month, the Office of the Attorney General of California released a second set of modifications to the proposed regulations for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
The CCPA, which includes various protections against the collection and disclosure of consumers’ personal information, was signed into law in June 2018.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (“EFF”) and the American Civil Liberties Union (“ACLU”) have ended six years of litigation with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles Police Department over the automated collection of license plate data.
New York has drafted a proposed law that, in some instances, goes well beyond the protections afforded by the CCPA. Sponsored by Kevin Thomas, the NY Privacy Act gives New York residents more control over their data than any other state and funds a new office of privacy and data protection.
An amendment seeking to expand the CCPA's private right of action and remove the thirty-day cure period did not receive a vote in the Senate Appropriations Committee, effectively blocking the bill.
The California Assembly Privacy and Consumer Protection Committee has passed bills amending the ambiguous law.
