What, when, why, how?

CPRA will come into force on January 1, 2023 and the ne CPRA agency will be able to enforce the law from July 1, 2023. Anyhow, the agency will be able to check all violations for personal information collected starting from January 1, 2022.

Does it apply to my company?

CPRA will apply to business that fit into these criteria:
  • More than 50% of the companies annual revenue is made from sharing or selling personal information of California consumers
  • The company has a gross revenue of more than 25,000,000 per year
  • The company buys, sells or shares personal information of more than 100,000 California consumers
New with this is especially that the law now also includes „sharing“ and not only selling. This means that usually all online advertising would fall under this.
