California: AG issues second set of modified CCPA proposed regulations

The California Attorney General ('AG'), Xavier Becerra, published, on 11 March 2020, the second set of modifications made to the proposed regulations ('the Proposed Regulations') under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 ('CCPA') for public comment. In particular, the Proposed Regulations introduce certain changes to the previous publication, including with regard to definitions and procedures to be followed when consumers submit notices to businesses. Furthermore, the description of an opt-out button has been removed from the Proposed Regulations as well as the guidance regarding the interpretation of definitions, and the requirement to include a link to a business's privacy policy at the collection of employee-related information. Finally, the Proposed Regulations introduce a requirement to include in a privacy policy the processes regarding minors, if the business has actual knowledge that it sells the personal information of minors under 16 years of age.

Written comments must be submitted to the California Department of Justice no later than 5:00 p.m. on 27 March 2020 by email to [email protected], or by mail.
