If you are planning to operate in California, USA it is recomended to address the CCPA. California is the first state in the US to enact a state statute addressing the privacy rights of the state residents (but it is estimated that other states will follow). The CCPA provides specific rights for users located in CA, those include the right to know what personal data is being collected, whether this data is disclosed or sold to any 3rd party, (and to disagree to the sale), the right to access their personal data, request a deletion of their information, and more. These rights should be addressed in your privacy policy and contain additional sections and information laid out for CA residents. Any information provided as an answer to these questions does not constitute legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship between the attorney and anyone in relation to any information provided under the Q & A section of this website.

Use of the ContractsCounsel Q&A Forum does not create an attorney-client relationship between User and any Lawyer User. The Forum is not a substitute for legal advice from a lawyer but is intended to be educational and to help the user determine if legal services are necessary.
