What’s happening in California affects everyone. The fight for a person’s right to privacy affects everyone. Because some people in power will pursue their self-interests to the exclusion of everyone else as far as the law will let them, it is necessary to legislate what can be done with personal information.

CCPA is the acronym for the California Consumer Privacy Act. It is the first act of its kind in the U.S. and only covers residents in California.
