Are you a business that is located or operates in California? Are you aware of the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)? The CCPA goes into effect on January 1st, 2020 and could impact your business.
Companies that meet any one of the following criteria will need to comply with the CCPA:
If even only one of these descriptions matches your organization, you will need to be compliant with the act.
Team WTI can help you make your site CCPA compliant. Here are the steps you will need to take:
This is something that you want to ignore. Non-compliance can put you at risk of facing large fines. The Attorney General will notify you of non-compliance, however, if you remain non-compliant after thirty days, they can initiate a civil case against you. The fine is up to $7500 per violation. That means per user, so if you violate the privacy of 1000 users, you will be fined $7,500,000. It is easy to see how this could get really bad, really quick. It is better to spend a little time and money to become compliant before there is a problem.
Contact Team WTI for any assistance you may need in making your site CCPA compliant for the new year.
