California Privacy Law Assembly Bill No. 375
The California privacy law AB-375 (Assembly Bill No. 375) passed on June 06, 2018, is related to private and personal information businesses obtain about consumers.
Starting on January 1, 2020, AB-375 grants consumers the right to request a business to disclose the categories and specific pieces of personal information that it collects about the consumer. In addition, the business must also provide the categories of sources from which that information is collected, the business reasons for collecting and/or selling the info, and the categories of third parties that the information will be shared with.
California privacy law AB 375 will require businesses to make disclosures about the information and the things that they will be used for. Due to this bill, consumers will have the right to request deletion of personal information. Even more so, the businesses would be required to delete a consumer’s personal information upon request.
As a result, California’s privacy law will authorize consumers to opt out of any sales related to personal information by a business. The bill also prohibits the business from discriminating against the consumer for exercising this right.
This bill also authorizes businesses to offer financial benefits by providing incentives for collection of personal information.
