Own Your Personal Information

The California Consumer Privacy Act empowers you to find out what information businesses are collecting about you, your devices, and your children, and gives you the choice to tell them NO.

If a business collects your personal information, once a year and free of charge they have to tell you what categories of information they have collected on you, your devices and your children.

If a business sells your personal information, they have to tell you what categories of personal information they are selling and then tell you to whom they sold your personal information.
