On Friday, February 7, 2020, the California Attorney General released an amended set of proposed regulations (supplemented on February 10, 2020) implementing the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”), including substantial changes to the draft regulations issued in October. While the revised regulations eliminate certain requirements that businesses found to be onerous and provide clarification on several points of lingering ambiguity, they also impose additional new compliance obligations and still fail to address certain thorny issues. Comments on the proposed regulations are due February 25, 2020.
This alert memorandum highlights certain notable changes that may affect the mechanisms and procedures businesses must implement in order to be in compliance with the CCPA, particularly with respect to public privacy policies, other notices to consumers, receipt and processing of CCPA consumer rights requests and avoiding discriminatory practices.
