Well, as the dust settles on the GDPR implementation, welcome to the California Consumer Privacy (CCPA) Act of 2018. The good news is that the law becomes effective January 1st 2020, so you have plenty of time to prepare and get ready for these compliance changes.
The primary focus of the CCPA is to provide additional control over consumer’s data and how it can be collected, stored, and used by corporations, sounds familiar? The legislation targets five key consumer rights when an individual’s personal information is collected:
- The right to know what personal information is being collected
- The right to know whether personal information is sold or disclosed, and to whom
- The right to say “no” to the sale of personal information, including deletion of data
- The right to equal service and price
- The right to access your personal information
As you think about how your store is preparing for the CCPA it’s a good time to:
- Evaluate your business’s data collection practices and usage.
- Review your disclosure notifications and also how you manage consumer requests when they arise.
- If you think you will be impacted, seek a legal opinion on how it may affect your organization.
If your restaurant has implemented GDPR, you will see that there are similarities and comparisons to the CCPA. Because the two are alike, the steps you have taken will ultimately help prepare you for the CCPA. However, they are NOT the same and there will be differences to be aware of.
Fishbowl is committed to privacy and compliance and will be tracking any issue or legislations that may ultimately impact your restaurant operations. We will continue to communicate on the CCPA and other legislation as needed, providing insights and guidance (not legal advice).
