CCPA stands for the California Consumers Privacy Act. The CCPA provides California residents with the ability to control how businesses process their personal information. Please consult with a legal professional if you have further questions about CCPA.
The CCPA applies to any business, including any for-profit entity that collects consumers' personal data, which does business in California, and satisfies at least one of the following thresholds: Has annual gross revenues in excess of $25 million; Possesses the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices; or Earns more than half of its annual revenue from selling consumers' personal information.
Non-profits, smaller companies that don't meet the revenue thresholds, and/or those that don't traffic in large amounts of personal information from California residents, and don't share a brand with an affiliate that's covered by the CCPA won't have to comply.
