California Consumer Privacy Act

Helping clients understand and comply.

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) took effect on January 1, 2020, and is notable both because it provides California residents with significant privacy-related rights and because it requires covered entities to undertake significant compliance efforts. The California Attorney General’s office is charged with enforcing the CCPA’s privacy-related rights and is authorized to seek statutory damages for violations. Private litigants are authorized to seek statutory damages for data breaches caused by a business’s failure to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices.

Husch Blackwell’s privacy and data security team regularly helps clients understand and comply with the CCPA and frequently writes about privacy developments on our Byte Back blog. Our attorneys counsel clients with determining whether the CCPA applies to their business. We also advise clients on the CCPA’s requirements for providing specific consumer disclosures, its opt-out provision, and responding to verifiable requests from consumers to delete their personal information or to provide the specific pieces of personal information the business has collected on the consumer for the 12-month period prior to the request.

There is very little HB attorneys can’t do for us. On the extraordinarily rare occasion that HB attorneys do not feel they have the precise skills we need on a given matter, they are very candid and honest in saying so. This level of integrity and genuine care for our success is one of the key reasons we continue to return to HB.
