California’s Department of Justice has released additional modifications to the proposed regulations for businesses to comply with the state’s data privacy law that took effect this year.

The modifications to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) proposed regulations are based on comments received in February and are now open for comment through March 27, 2020.

Text of the CCPA and the changes in the modifications compared to the last version may be viewed on the California Attorney General’s website for the CCPA.

For example, some proposed changes are listed in the Overview of Required Notices businesses that are required to comply with the CCPA must provide to consumers.

  • Every business that must comply with the CCPA and these regulations shall provide a privacy policy in accordance with the CCPA and these regulations, including section 999.308.
  • A business that collects personal information from a consumer shall provide a notice at collection in accordance with the CCPA and these regulations, including section 999.305.
  • A business that sells personal information shall provide a notice of right to opt-out in accordance with the CCPA and these regulations, including section 999.306.
  • A business that offers a financial incentive or price or service difference shall provide a notice of financial incentive in accordance with the CCPA and these regulations, including section 999.307.

The California Department of Justice will accept comments regarding the proposed changes by email to [email protected], or by mail to the address listed below through 5 p.m. March 27, 2020.
