Important updates about the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

212

Here’s an email sent by Google to its users about its recent update to California Consumer Privacy Act CCPA-

 

Dear Partner, 

 

 The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new data privacy law that applies to certain businesses that collect personal information from California residents. The new law goes into effect on January 1, 2020.

  

  Google already offers data protection terms pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe. We are now also offering service provider terms under the CCPA, which will supplement those existing data protection terms (revised to reflect the CCPA), effective January 1, 2020. No additional action is required to accept the service provider terms if you’ve already agreed to the online data protection terms.

  

   These service provider terms will be made available alongside new tools for partners to enable restricted data processing. Restricted data processing is intended to help advertisers and partners prepare for CCPA. Please note that restricted data processing operates differently across our products. Some products provided by Google will automatically operate using restricted data processing while the action is required to enable restricted data processing for other products.

  

Subject to the service provider terms, we will act as your CCPA service provider with respect to data processed while restricted data processing is enabled. You can refer to this article for more information on restricted data processing and determine whether restricted data processing meets your CCPA compliance needs. 

 

Please see privacy.google.com/businesses for more information about Google’s data privacy policies.

  

 Thanks,

  

 The Google Team
