On June 28, 2018, California enacted a comprehensive consumer privacy law known as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) (Cal. Civ. Code §§ 1798.100-1798.199). The CCPA takes effect January 1, 2020. The CCPA grants California resident’s new rights regarding their personal information and imposes various data protection duties on certain entities conducting business in California.

CCPA Customer FAQ
Does my Organisation need to be compliant with the CCPA?
Under the CCPA, organisations that collect and manage personal information (including, but not limited to, names, email addresses, credit card numbers, and IP addresses) from California residents are defined as a “Business” and subject to these regulations. As your ERP or Mid-office or Back-office or website provider, Sriggle is defined as a “Service Provider” and is also subject to these regulations.
My Organisation is GDPR compliant, do we have to do anything for the CCPA?
While the CCPA incorporates several GDPR concepts, such as the rights of access, portability, and data deletion, there are several areas where the CCPA requirements are more specific than those of the GDPR or where the GDPR goes beyond the CCPA requirements. Given their comprehensiveness and broad reaches, each law may have significant impact on entities that collect and process personal data.
What steps should I take to become compliant with the CCPA?
We recommend that all Clients consider the following actions as part of their data protection efforts. Please note that the list is not exhaustive, and that Sriggle cannot provide any legal advice on what specific actions are required of your organization to become compliant with the CCPA.
