What is the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was originally introduced on January 3, 2018, as Assembly Bill 375. This policy was signed into law on June 28, 2018, and amendments were added in 2018, and again in 2019. The CCPA officially went into effect as of January 1, 2020.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) created new consumer rights relating to the access to, deletion of, and sharing of personal information that is collected by businesses. Essentially, the CCPA has secured new privacy rights for California residents.
What does the CCPA mean for Swappa users?
- The right to request that Swappa disclose what personal information we collect, use, disclose or sell
- The right to request deletion of their personal information collected or maintained by Swappa
- The right to opt-out of the sale of personal information (Swappa does not sell user information)
- The right not to receive discriminatory treatment by Swappa for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA
What to expect if you file a CCPA request?
When a CCPA request is made, Swappa staff will first verify the identity of the user making the request. The verification process will include confirming details on the user, such as the first and last name, and email address. Other information such as the original date of account creation, or dates of purchase(s) may be requested during the verification process.
Once a user’s identity has been confirmed, Swappa staff will process the request in a timely manner, and according to the requirements of the CCPA. The act requires Swappa to deliver the request “within 45 days of receiving a verifiable consumer request from the consumer.”
