Although the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”) became effective on January 1, 2020, it will not become enforceable until July 1, 2020. As one of the strictest privacy laws in the United States, the CCPA likely to have a significant impact on businesses across the country. In fact, because of the nature of the modern economy, many businesses without physical locations in California may even be impacted.
