CCPA Compliance Mini-Template

$55.00

Enforcement for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) begins July 1, 2020. Even if your business is not in California, or even in the United States, if your website has traffic from the state of California, you may be required to comply with the CCPA. Under the CCPA, business owners meeting certain thresholds (please see below to see if your business meets the criteria) are legally required to provide specific rights and disclose specific information in their webpage Privacy Policies. If your webpage Privacy Policy was drafted by an attorney prior to the start of 2020, it is likely not CCPA-compliant. This mini-template has all of the information you need to bring your Privacy Policy into CCPA compliance and can easily be customized and slotted into your existing Privacy Policy. Unsure of whether you need CCPA compliance? Please see below for more details.

Under the CCPA, California residents have certain rights with regard to whether their personal information can be sold, and what you as a business owner with a website need to disclose as far as the collection and use of their personal information. Even if your business is not in California, or is outside of the United States entirely, you may be required to comply. The CCPA applies to businesses that:

  1. Collect personal information (note: this is pretty much all businesses. If you have a “Contact Us” form, have
    free downloads in exchange for an email address attached to your website, you sell products or services
    through your website, your website tracks cookies, or you run Google Analytics, you collect personal
    information), AND:
  2. Your business grosses more than $25M per year OR
  3. Your business derives more than 50% of its income annually from the sale of the personal information it
    collects OR
  4. Your website receives 50,000+ visitors annually (some of whom are from California).

While the first two are unlikely, the 50,000 visitor threshold may be easier to hit than you think. If you have a popular blog, for example, 50,000 visitors is easily achievable. Regardless, it is always better to be safe, and overly inclusive, versus run the risk of noncompliance.

This mini-template can be slotted into your existing Privacy Policy and customized to bring you into compliance with the CCPA. Please note that this mini-template should only be used with Privacy Policies that are compliant with all other laws, including, but not limited to, COPPA, CAN-SPAM, the GDPR.

Please see Details for other potential (but unlikely) criteria that put you under the CCPA’s purview, but if your business website receives a good deal of traffic (more than 50,000 visitors annually), and some of those visitors are from California, you are required to be CCPA-compliant. As an aside, if you have purchased a Privacy Policy from Solivagant Legal, that Privacy Policy is already CCPA-compliant.

 

Important: Solivagant Legal does not guarantee that use of this mini-template ensures your pre-existing Privacy Policy, not drafted by us, is fully compliant with all applicable laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, GDPR, CAN-SPAM Act, COPPA, and more.
