  • If your business sells, buys, or discloses personal details of the consumers.
  • If you derive 50% or more of your revenue from selling Californian consumers’ personal info.

5 Solutions To Prepare Your Business For CCPA Compliance – 

  • Prepare Data And System Inventory 

One of the best ways is to prepare a thorough inventory of your business’s data and work to learn where your PII resides and flows throughout the organization. It is crucial for responding to or taking care of the requirements of consumers. 

You must make sure that your system allows you to get easy access and retrieval permission for PII so that you can instantly identify any individual’s personal information.

  • Evaluate And Make Changes In External Privacy Policies

According to the California data privacy law, CCPA requires organizations to disclose certain information to consumers. This mandatory disclosure has to be made in the online privacy policy section. In addition, as per CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act), California consumers have legal rights to pressurize enterprises to remove personal information and disclose what PII has collected about an individual. 

  • By Implementing Consumer Rights Request Procedure’

One of the primary requirements of CCPA compliance is to address the consumers’ requirements. Every business must have more than two ways for the consumer to quickly and simply make ‘rights requests.’ It is also recommended to create a template for a quick reply to the consumers. Also, the request procedure must include:

  1. Track or audit the history of any legal disputes. 
  2. Free of cost request fulfillment within 45 days for over 12 months.
  3. Verifying the user’s identity and securing a way of communication.
  4. For receiving consumer request details and determining its legitimacy.
  • Install A “Do Not Use My Personal Details” Button

All businesses must provide a clearly visible link space on their website homepage stating – “Do Not Use My Personal Details” to build consumers’ trust in you. Besides that, it is also important to announce the “Opt-Out” request from the selling of personal info.

Hence, it is crucial to have both – the “Do Not Use My Personal Details” and “Opt-Out” buttons clearly mentioned on your business website’s homepage. 

  • Compile A List Of Third Parties Where You Sell Consumer Details

It is imperative to have a list of all the third parties to whom you sell your consumers’ details. It works handy when you receive a request from your consumer to stop selling their personal details to other companies. Also, this request will obligate your company to mitigate the selling of personal details for at least 12 months after the request.
