The California  Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), the most expansive state privacy law in US history, will take effect on January 1, 2020.

Our team will share with readers a series of alerts on the major elements of the CCPA. The first in the series – The California Consumer Privacy Act Series – Part 1: Applicability – focuses on the Act’s applicability, including who it will affect, personal information as defined by the CCPA, and the Act’s exemptions.

Our earlier blog posts discuss the nuances of the CCPA and the possibility of a federal privacy framework.
