Easy How To Make Your Google Analytics CCPA Compliant

 

What Google Analytics can do?

Google Analytics says,

Google Analytics lets you measure your advertising ROI as well as track your Flash, video, and social networking sites and applications.

So if you are running a website(including wordpress websites), Google Analytics will be the best tool to measure it. There is no doubt on that.

Google Analytics while measuring site performance and user behaviour , it also collects some data.

Here only some question arises by Government of some countries/Unions which is how much control an individual can have for their personal data? . And so European Union Law made GDPR in 2016 and implemented in 2018.

So whatever the business which has data of person comes under this law.And so it’s also for Google Analytics.

Now California in United States also created like the above for their residents.And it is called as California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) .

CCPA was introduced and Signed into law in the year 2018.

On October 10,2019,Attorney General Xavier Becerra    released draft regulations under the CCPA for public comment.   

The law went into effect on January 1, 2020, and it’s enforceable from July 1, 2020.

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them. This landmark law secures new privacy rights for California consumers, including:

The right to know about the personal information a business collects about them and how it is used and shared;
The right to delete personal information collected from them (with some exceptions);
The right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information; and
The right to non-discrimination for exercising their CCPA rights.
Businesses are required to give consumers certain notices explaining their privacy practices. The CCPA applies to many businesses, including data brokers.

What businesses does the CCPA apply to?
The CCPA applies to for-profit businesses that do business in California and meet any of the following:

Have a gross annual revenue of over $25 million;
Buy, receive, or sell the personal information of 50,000 or more California residents, households, or devices; or
Derive 50% or more of their annual revenue from selling California residents’ personal information.

What can I do if I think a business violated the CCPA?
You cannot sue businesses for most CCPA violations. You can only sue a business under the CCPA if there is a data breach, and even then, only under limited circumstances. You can sue a business if your nonencrypted and nonredacted personal information was stolen in a data breach as a result of the business’s failure to maintain reasonable security procedures and practices to protect it. If this happens, you can sue for the amount of monetary damages you actually suffered from the breach or “statutory damages” of up to $750 per incident. If you want to sue for statutory damages, you must give the business written notice of which CCPA sections it violated and give it 30 days to give you a written statement that it has cured the violations in your notice and that no further violations will occur. You cannot sue for statutory damages for a CCPA violation if the business is able to cure the violation and gives you its written statement that it has done so, unless the business continues to violate the CCPA contrary to its statement.

For all other violations of the CCPA, only the Attorney General can file an action against businesses. The Attorney General does not represent individual California consumers. Using consumer complaints and other information, the Attorney General may identify patterns of misconduct that may lead to investigations and actions on behalf of the collective legal interests of the people of California. If you believe a business has violated the CCPA, you may file a consumer complaint with the Office of the Attorney General. If you choose to file a complaint with our office, explain exactly how the business violated the CCPA, and describe when and how the violation occurred. Please note that the Attorney General cannot represent you or give you legal advice on how to resolve your individual complaint.
