On Monday, Oct. 12, the California Office of the Attorney General (the Attorney General or OAG) released a third set of proposed modifications to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) regulations (the Regulations). The full text can be found on the Attorney General’s website here. The proposed modifications to the Regulations are limited to four sections. While the proposed changes are relatively minor in substance, they nevertheless provide helpful and important guidance on the following topics:
- Requirement to provide notice at collection (and prohibition of new or secondary uses of personal information);
- Requirement for offline notice of right to opt-out;
- Requirement to make it “easy” for consumers to submit opt-out requests;
- Methods for verifying an authorized agent request; and
- Requirements for Notices to Minors Under 16 Years of Age.
