DC talks about California's CCPA like it is the strongest privacy law imaginable. But here in the real world, we know it needs to be stronger. CA's Attorney General admits his office is never going to sue every company that ignores an opt-out request.
The Legislature is being balky and believe it or not, they don't want to vote for the Attorney General's sponsored bill, SB 561, that would let you sue if a company sells your personal information without your consent.
So starting in 2020, you can ask who they sell your info to, but nothing happens if a company won't tell you. So starting in 2020, you can opt out, but nothing happens if a company sells your data anyway. This is not okay.
It's called a private right of action and it means that the people can enforce the laws that are supposed to protect them.
Four CA Democrats stand between you and your privacy rights. Tell them you won't put up with them stealing away your right to sue a company that abuses your privacy.
