Californians for Consumer Privacy Launches a NEW Non-Partisan Tool to Navigate Newly-Won Online Privacy Rights
Sacramento, CA — Today, Californians for Consumer Privacy, the California consumer privacy advocacy organization that authored the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), announced the launch of a new non-partisan consumer-friendly website tool, the CPRA Resource Center.
The updated website now features:
- an outline of new rights to consumers under the CPRA
- a section by section description of the new law
- a timeline for new law’s implementation
- the full CPRA text to help consumers distinguish the differences between their rights under CCPA and the new law (with and without annotations)
“A decisive majority of Californians supported the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) to strengthen consumer privacy rights. I think it’s important they know exactly what that means,” said Alastair Mactaggart, Board Chair and Founder of Californians for Consumer Privacy. “Our new CPRA Resource Center is a convenient tool that will help California consumers navigate their new rights to take back control of their private personal information.”
This new law gives Californians the strongest online privacy rights in the world, including protecting sensitive personal information, tripling fines against companies that violate kids’ data, establishing an enforcement arm for consumers, and making it harder to weaken privacy laws in the future.
About Californians for Consumer Privacy
Californians for Consumer Privacy (CCP) is the same group that authored the first-in-the-nation California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which was passed unanimously by the California State Legislature and signed into law by California Governor Jerry Brown. When Big Tech firms spent 2019 trying to water down CCPA, CCP filed an initiative to both expand and enshrine privacy rights, the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), that gathered over 900,000 signatures in early 2020 and subsequently was approved by voters in November 2020 as Proposition 24.
