- The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new Act that will be effective in 2020. California residents will now be able to find out what personal information is being gathered about them, have access to it, know what information is shared and with whom and if their information is sold they now have the right to opt out of that sale. Also, excising their privacy rights will not exclude them from receiving equal service and price.
- The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from the European Union (EU) focuses on protection and privacy for all individuals in the EU and EEA. It also addresses export of personal information outside the EU and EEA.
