SACRAMENTO – Today, Californians for Consumer Privacy Chair and Founder Alastair Mactaggart released the following statement recognizing the historic passage of sweeping consumer privacy rights in California last year.
“When the California Consumer Privacy Act passed last summer, we beat the odds. The Legislature’s unanimous support and Governor Jerry Brown’s signature will deliver consumer privacy protections to one in every eight Americans starting in 2020. The power of California law will hold the world’s largest corporations accountable for how they are using our personal data. But make no mistake: last year’s David-versus-Goliath fight for consumer privacy rights continues, and we’re as dedicated as ever to making sure every consumer has control over what happens to their personal information.”
