The CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) is a privacy-centric bill aimed at protecting the privacy of California consumers that will be effective on January 1, 2020.
Our commitment: Zoomph is fully committed to achieving compliance with the CCPA prior to the regulation’s effective date.
How does CCPA affect Zoomph?
What is Zoomph doing to prepare for the CCPA?
Because of the many product and process enhancements we made in preparation for the 2018 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), when the CCPA was signed we were already well-positioned to support customers needing to comply.
However, the CCPA is not the GDPR. To make sure we’d be ready and to finalize our preparations, we contracted a California-based law firm to review our processes and controls and advise on any applicable enhancements. The most notable outcomes of this engagement were refinements to these documents:
As a Zoomph customer, do I meet the basic requirements of the CCPA?
The CCPA is a large piece of legislation and covers many topics that have no direct impact or tie with your use of Zoomph. However, there are areas of the CCPA where your customers might have rights that relate to your use of Zoomph. We’ve included a brief explanation of their rights and how Zoomph can be used in a manner that supports you in servicing them below.
Under the CCPA, businesses must update privacy notices to specifically state what data is collected, categorize the data collected, explain the purpose for the data’s use, identify third parties with which that data is shared, and communicate the rights available to an individual.
The lawful disclosure and consent have always been part of Zoomph’s Terms of Service.
Under the CCPA, California consumers may have the right to request and receive a list of personal information and additional details a business collects (or has collected), as well as the intended business use for collecting this data.
The consumer may also be able to request that any specific personal information be deleted. With the exception of specific types of data (e.g. billing or other regulatory required information), these deletion requests must be fulfilled by you, the business.
As always, your privacy and that of your users is a high priority for our team. We’ve built tools and processes to make it easy for you to address requirements with the ever-evolving privacy laws—but if you have any questions with regards to these tools, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
