California proposes regulations to enforce new privacy law

October 10, 2019 / MARGUERITE REARDON

California proposed new regulations Thursday that dictate how the state's tough new privacy law will be enforced. The law known as the California Consumer Privacy Act or CCPA, gives consumers more control over how companies collect and manage their personal data. It goes into effect on Jan. 1. Attorney General Xavier Becerra released his agency's draft of the regulations during a press conference. The CCPA is considered to offer the toughest data privacy protections in the nation. The law allows people to request that data be deleted and gives them the opportunity to opt out of having their information sold to a third party.  The proposed regulations would also include specific requirements that businesses must comply with, such as, including a "Do Not Sell" link on websites.
