In our previous update, we summarized key operational elements that businesses should be aware of under the proposed Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA), and provided practical tips to help businesses comply with these new requirements.

  • Appropriate purposes and uses of personal information; and
  • Using personal information for automated decision-making.
