CALIFORNIA’S CONSUMER PRIVACY ACT OF 2018 SECTION-BY-SECTION NOTICE REQUIREMENT SUMMARY

The following chart identifies and summarizes the primary statute sections relating to the CCPA’s generalized notice or disclosure requirements.

CCPA SectionGeneral Notice or Information Disclosure Summary
Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.100(b)Must inform consumers, before or at the point of collection:
  • What personal information categories a business collects.
  • Its intended use purposes.
Prohibits collection of additional personal information categories or using collected personal information for additional purposes without providing this required notice.
Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.105(b)Must disclose the consumer’s deletion right. Cross-references Section 1798.130 for the disclosure requirement.
Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.110(c)If a business collects personal information about a consumer, it must disclose:

Cross-references Section 1798.130(a)(5)(B) for the disclosure requirement. NOTE: While Section 1798.110(c)(5) does list “the specific pieces of personal information the business has collected about that consumer” as a required piece of information in the online privacy disclosure, this is likely a statutory drafting error (see Practice Note, Understanding the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA): History of the CCPA). Businesses should probably interpret this requirement as referring to the consumer’s specific information (access) rights and not as a requirement to include individual personal information in the online privacy notice (see Practice Note, Understanding the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA): Specific Information Rights).
Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.115(c)If a business sells personal information or discloses personal information for a business purpose, it must disclose the personal information categories:

Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.115(d)A third-party purchaser of a consumer’s personal information cannot resell that information unless the consumer receives explicit notice and an opportunity to opt- out. Cross-references Section 1798.120 establishing the consumer’s personal information sales opt-out and opt-in rights.
Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.120(b)If a business sells personal information to third parties, it must provide notice to consumers that:
  • It may sell their information.
  • Consumers have the right to opt-out of these sales. Cross-references Section 1798.135(a) for notice requirements.
Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.125(b)(2) and (3)If a business offers financial incentives for personal information collections, sales, or deletions, it must notify consumers of the financial incentives and clearly describe material terms. Cross-references Section 1798.135 for notice requirements.

The lists must use the 11 categories enumerated in the personal information definition in Section 1798.140(o) that most closely describe the personal information. Disclosure must occur:
  • In the business’s online privacy policy, if it exists.
