The CCPA and its Job among its Citizens
In response to the increasing function of personal data in contemporary business practices and at the same time, personal privacy implications surrounding the use, collection as well as protection of personal information, California passed a law to protect personal data which is now known as California Consumers Protection Act 2018 or simply, CCPA.
Also, California government is one of the top states in the US that is looking forward to protect the rights of its citizens.
Despite the fact that both CCPA and CalOPPA have its fair share of similarities, we can still expect that they have differences. For instance, if you do include info on what, why and how you collect data and processing personal information, then you will satisfy the requirements of CCPA and CalOPPA. Still, let us not forget that these two are different in its own right.
As a matter of fact, CalOPPA is applicable to businesses that are based in California and at the same time, businesses that are based outside the state that collect info of at least one resident of California. Not only that, CalOPPA does not need prior consent. CCPA however needs to obtain prior consent especially among minors before they can even sell personal data. If for example that they are 13 to 16 years old only, then you would have to secure consent by them and if they are younger than this range, then you have to talk to their parents or guardians to obtain consent.
And with CCPA, this is going to take effect in virtually any company in the world but then again, there would be some exceptions on its implementation. This would only be effective so long as the business is collecting personal data of any California residents, annual gross income reaches 25 million dollars at least, acquires personal info of around 50,000 California households, residents and/or devices annually and lastly, at least 50 percent of their annual profit is generated by means of selling personal information of any Californian residents.
If the business do so otherwise, then they will likely be charged for violation.
