The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) is a sweeping new privacy statute that grants rights to consumers and imposes corresponding obligations on subject businesses. The CCPA defines consumers to mean California residents, and generally defines “business” as for-profit entities that meet certain threshold requirements.
The CCPA also gives California residents the right to stop the “sale” of their personal information through a mechanism called “Do Not Sell My Personal Information.” While there are many positive impacts of this requirement, California’s definition of “sale” also captures the transfer of data between corporate affiliates (that is, companies that share common ownership) and other transfers that ordinarily may not be thought of as a “sale” in the traditional sense of the word.
