The California Consumer Privacy Act 2018 (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them.
The CCPA requires businesses to provide detailed privacy notices with prescribed content, including transparent disclosures about information collection and use practices, sharing of personal information, and consumers’ privacy rights.
Personal information is any information that directly identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with or could reasonably be linked, either directly or indirectly, with a particular individual or household. This includes, for example, names; aliases; unique personal identifiers (such as social security number, driver’s license number, passport number, etc.); account or user names; IP addresses; unique device or cookie identifier, biometric data; educational, professional, or employment data; behavioral data; Internet activity data; and inferences drawn about an individual based on the foregoing or online activity.
A “sale” of personal information is any disclosure of or grant of access to personal information in exchange for money or other valuable consideration. These sales are regulated by requiring businesses that sell personal information to provide consumers detailed notice and the opportunity to opt out of these sales.
Companies can be a “business,” “service provider,” or “third party.” Many companies will qualify as one or more depending on the relationship of the parties and the nature of their data processing activities. This is how Secure Code Warrior views these roles in relation to our services and associated responsibilities:
A business is a for-profit entity that (a) does business in California, regardless of whether it has any physical presence in the state; (b) processes personal information of California residents or on whose behalf such personal information is processed;(c) alone, or jointly with others, determines the means and purposes of the processing; and (d) either: (i) has more than $25 million in annual gross revenue; (ii) annually buys, sells, receives or shares for a commercial purpose the personal information of at least 50,000 consumers, whether alone or in combination with other businesses; or (iii) derives at least 50% of its annual revenue from the sale of consumers’ personal information.
A “service provider” because we process personal information on your behalf pursuant to a written agreement. The CCPA requires that this agreement limit our ability to use the personal information we process on your behalf solely to what is needed to perform the services or as may otherwise be permitted by the CCPA. We offer our customers subject to the CCPA an addendum incorporating these terms.
