What is Privacy Automation?

Privacy laws and regulations have transformed the relationship between businesses and the personal data they collect from consumers. The CCPA grants privacy rights to California’s consumers, which gives them the right to request access, delete, and modify their data. Granting these rights to individuals can place a significant burden on businesses because they must know exactly what data they hold, where, and in what context, which can be an extremely complex process to unfold.

California Legislature Further Delays B2B & Employee Privacy Rights

On August 31, 2020, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill 1281, extending the business-to-business and employee partial moratoria also referred to as employee privacy rights, until the end of 2021. Earlier this year, in a study conducted among privacy professionals by Dimension Data on behalf of Truyo, 49% of businesses were already addressing employee privacy rights in the workplace.

Breaking News: OAL Approves the Final Regulations Under CCPA

If the CCPA has proved anything in 2020, it was the certainty of uncertainty. Businesses subject to the CCPA have been uncertain about how the CCPA would be interpreted ever since the statute was passed in 2019. After months of proposals and amendments to the CCPA’s regulations, California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra submitted the final regulations of the CCPA to the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) on June 1, 2020. The OAL approved the regulations and Mr. Becerra announced on August 14, 2020 that they would take effect immediately.

CCPA 2.0/CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act) – Teetering On the Edge

Despite missing the April 21, 2020 target date, the advocacy group, Californians for Consumer Privacy, is still moving forward with their attempt to qualify the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) on the November 2020 ballot. This new ballot initiative has until June 25, 2020, to get at least 623,212 signatures verified by state and county officials but it’s a complicated and perilous process to secure a spot in the general elections, as explained by Michael Hellbusch from Rutan & Tucker.

Did Mactaggart fail to submit signatures for the CPRA?

Did Mactaggart fail to submit signatures in time for the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”) to be on the ballot for the November 3rd election? It is very possible he did.

California law requires a proposed initiative to be certified for the ballot by the Secretary of State at least 131 days before the next general election at which it is to be submitted to the voters, in this case, the November 3, 2020 election. That means that the CPRA must be issued a certificate of qualification for the ballot by June 25, 2020. Any proposed initiative that is not certified on or before that date will not be placed on the ballot.  Because of this hard deadline, initiative proponents like Mr. Mactaggart are advised to provide themselves with sufficient time to complete the necessary requirements to be on the ballot. This includes factoring in the time it takes for government officials to perform the required tasks of counting and verifying petition signatures.
