Last week, the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) launched a new website dedicated to providing resources to California residents about their privacy rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The purpose of this new website is to serve as a central resource for residents to understand their rights and the actions that they can take related to a variety of privacy issues.

One of the website’s features includes information on a resident’s rights under the CCPA and how to submit a complaint against a business. On the flip side, it also includes resources for businesses to understand their obligations under the CCPA.

Other resources include guidance on what to do if you are a victim of a data breach, identity theft, financial privacy, children’s privacy, and civil rights violations.

The CPPA intends to update the website frequently with additional resources for residents and make it as helpful as possible to users. While the website is geared towards educating the consumer population, businesses should also check out its content so that they can understand what may be most important to the agency that enforces violations of the CCPA.
