What are the General Data Protection Regulations 2016 (GDPR)?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a comprehensive privacy law that the European Union (EU) enacted in 2016 and went into effect in May 2018. The GDPR is intended to offer EU citizens more control over their personal data while also requiring businesses to be clear about how they collect, process, and keep personal data.

Companies must obtain explicit consent from individuals to collect and process their personal data under the GDPR. Companies must also allow individuals access to their personal data and tell them about how their data is being used. Individuals have the right under the GDPR to have their personal data destroyed and to have their data transferred from one company to another.

The GDPR applies to any company that collects, processes, or maintains personal data about individuals in the EU, regardless of its location. Companies that violate the GDPR may be fined up to €20 million or 4% of their global yearly revenue, whichever is greater. Each EU member state's supervisory authority enforces the GDPR.

Overall, the GDPR has dramatically strengthened consumers' privacy rights within the EU and compelled businesses to be more transparent about how they collect, use, and keep personal data. It has also served as a model for other countries and areas around the world who are enacting comparable privacy laws to protect the personal data of their residents.

What is the California Consumer Privacy Act 2018 (CCPA)?

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a privacy law that was passed in the state of California, United States, in 2018. It is intended to provide California people more control over their personal information that corporations collect and utilise. Companies are required by the CCPA to disclose what personal information they gather, how it is used, and with whom it is shared. It also allows customers to request that their personal information be removed and to opt out of having their personal information sold.

Businesses must provide customers with a clear and noticeable notice at or before the point of collection of personal information under the CCPA. This notice must educate the consumer about the types of personal information that will be collected and how it will be used. The CCPA also compels enterprises to give customers with the right to access and remove their personal information.

The CCPA applies to businesses that do business in California and meet certain criteria, such as having annual gross revenues of $25 million or more, collecting personal information from at least 50,000 California residents, households, or devices annually, or generating 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling California residents' personal information. The California Attorney General enforces the legislation and can levy fines of up to $7,500 per infringement.
