As of January 1, 2020, companies around the world will have to comply with additional regulations related to processing of personal data of California residents. Pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, companies have to:
- observe restrictions on data monetization business models
- accommodate rights to access, deletion, and porting of personal data
- issue or update privacy notices to provide detailed disclosures about data handling practices
- brace for additional penalties and liquidated damages.
