How To Create a CCPA Mobile App
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) protects consumer privacy rights within California. Since January 1, 2020, any company that collects consumer data that is located in California or has a market in California must abide by the regulations of CCPA. Discover how to be CCPA compliant and what the consequences are if you are not.
Features of a CCPA Mobile App :
- The home page of a company’s website or Mobile Health App must include a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link, directing users to a web page that enables them to opt-out of having their personal information sold.
- Companies, activists, associations, and others can be authorized to exercise opt-out rights on behalf of California residents.
- Companies must gain parental or guardian consent to collect the data of children under 13 years of age. Minors between 13 and 16 must opt-in to having that information sold for data sharing purposes.
- Covered businesses must provide methods for consumers to submit data access requests, including, at a minimum, a toll-free telephone number.
- Keep privacy policies updated with new information, including a description of CCPA.
- Avoid requesting opt-in consent for 12 months after a California resident opts-out
- Privacy notices must be accessible within the CCPA Mobile App.
- Companies must implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices.
- Companies have 30 days to comply with the law once regulators notify them of a violation. If the issue isn’t resolved, they could be fined up to $7,500 per offense or each intentional violation and $2,500 for each unintentional violation.
- Consumers can sue if the opt-out footer is missing from a company’s website or CCPA Mobile App. They can also sue if they can’t find out how their information has been collected or are unable to get copies of that information.
- Data theft or other data security breaches can result in lawsuits with statutory damages between $100 to $750 per California resident and incident, or actual damages, whichever is greater, and any other relief a court deems proper.
