CCPA, or the California Consumer Privacy Act, is a privacy law that was enacted in the state of California in 2018. The law is intended to give California residents more control over their personal data, and it applies to businesses that collect and process the personal data of California residents.

The CCPA defines personal information as any information that can be used to identify, contact, or locate an individual. This includes names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, and other personal information.

The law applies to businesses that collect or process the personal data of California residents. It gives residents the right to request access to their personal information or the erasure of the data.

Companies are required to provide a clear and conspicuous privacy policy explaining how they collect, use, and share personal data. The law imposes penalties on businesses that violate its provisions, including fines of up to $7,500 per violation. These fines can stack up to large amounts when violations involve personally identifiable information from many users.
