CCPA Letter

Press release

The California Bankers Association has submitted official comments on proposed regulations being promulgated by the California Attorney General in accordance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) of 2018. The CCPA establishes a series of consumer rights, including the right to know and the right to delete personal information that a business collects about the consumer, a right to prohibit a business from selling personal information, a right to not be discriminated against and a right to sue when personal information is subject to a data breach. The law is operative on January 1, 2020. The CCPA grants ongoing rulemaking authority to the AG but also mandates that regulations be adopted for specific provisions of the Act no later than July 1, 2020. CBA’s comment letter asks for clarity in several sections of this regulations, including notices to consumers, business practices for handling consumer requests, verification of requests and we also recommended clarification for issues presently not contemplated in the draft regulations.
