What Does It Mean? – A Discussion of the CCPA’s Thorny Interpretation Issues


The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) will be one of the most significant data privacy laws in the United States, requiring considerable effort to meet the CCPA’s operative date of January 1, 2020, and its likely July 1, 2020, date for enforcement.

Jeremiah Posedel moderated a discussion between Katherine Armstrong and Peter Blenkinsop regarding certain core, but complicated (and in some cases, unclear) issues under the CCPA, such as the following:

  • The definition and scope of “personal information”
  • The types of activities that could constitute a “sale”
  • Standards for determining whether a consumer request is “verifiable”
  • Distinguishing financial incentives from discrimination
  • General exceptions to CCPA compliance, and more

This was the fourth webinar in a series on the CCPA presented by Drinker Biddle’s Information Privacy, Security and Governance team. The CCPA series provides practical, detailed advice on preparing for the CCPA and insights regarding regulatory and other developments that may affect CCPA compliance efforts.
