We fight for consumer privacy

Support Our 2020 Campaign

We hope you’ll consider chipping in a few dollars to support the upcoming 2020 ballot initiative and our campaign to pass the California Consumer Privacy Act.

The California Privacy Rights Act of 2020


In the two years since introducing legislation that passed as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which gives nearly 40 million people in this state the strongest data privacy rights in the country starting January 2020, we’ve realized the immense power consumers are up against when it comes to having true control over our own data. 

It is for this reason that we are proposing the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) which gives you the power to take back control over your personal information, expand consumer rights, create more transparency and establish an enforcement arm to protect these rights, which are your privacy rights.

“Officials in the Czech Republic have launched an investigation into Avast, one of the Internet’s most popular free antivirus programs, amid accusations the company sold the search history of as many as 100 million users to third parties.”


“EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY, everywhere on the planet, dozens of companies — largely unregulated, little scrutinized — are logging the movements of tens of millions of people with mobile phones and storing the information in gigantic data files."

“A group of civil rights and consumer groups is urging federal and state regulators to examine a number of mobile apps, including popular dating apps Grindr, Tinder and OKCupid for allegedly sharing personal information with advertising companies.”

“Then Mr. Ton-That — an Australian techie and onetime model — did something momentous: He invented a tool that could end your ability to walk down the street anonymously, and provided it to hundreds of law enforcement agencies, ranging from local cops in Florida to the F.B.I. and the Department of Homeland Security.”

“As Consumer Reports’ Digital Lab found in a recent examination of five popular period tracking apps—BabyCenter, Clue, Flo, My Calendar, and Ovia—this means even anonymous users like Feintuch have no guarantee that their information won’t be shared in some way with third parties for marketing and other purposes.”

Protect our personal information.

Creates new rights allowing you to stop businesses using your sensitive personal information, including about our health or finances, or knowing and selling our location without our knowledge or consent.

Safeguard our children's privacy.

Triple CCPA’s fines for collecting and selling our children’s private information and would require opt-in consent to sell from consumers under the age of 16.                                                                                                    

Establish an enforcement arm.

Establish a new authority to protect these rights, the California Privacy Protection Agency. Increase transparency through this agency, giving consumers back  control over their data.                                 

Data Privacy Law Comparison.

Give people a general overview on data privacy and the basic of the issues and the type of information that is at stake. This is good to introduce this whole data privacy world to people that might not have the whole picture or understand how their information is being used.

“It recently announced a new ballot initiative that would significantly amend the CCPA and, if successful, once again radically shift the privacy landscape in California.”

“The new ballot proposition he’s crafted, for instance, includes new restrictions on the use of ‘sensitive personal information.’ Data that would be covered by that definition includes geolocation information, Social Security numbers, passport numbers and data on race, religion, union membership, and sexual orientation, among other categories.”

“In late September, the real estate developer turned privacy champion unveiled a draft of a second California privacy measure, one he says is aimed at blocking lobbyists' attempts to gut the first one.”

“While retaining many CCPA provisions, CalPRA proposes significant updates to the CCPA, and seeks for the CA attorney general’s office and a newly formed privacy agency to issue guidance and regulations on various issues.”

“Alastair Mactaggart aims to tighten data rules that business groups backed by Facebook and Google have protested”
