California Signs Data Privacy act for 2020

Yet another regulatory insertion to be interpreted and inserted:

Companies Confront Calififornia's Version of GDPR
By George Slefo in AdAge

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed the Consumer Privacy Act on Thursday, giving residents of the state significantly more control over how their data is collected, used and handled.

Call it "GDPR Lite." 

Although the law will not go into effect until January 2020, it will without question have massive implications for every brand, agency and tech company both here and abroad. ... 

In short, California just passed its own digital privacy law, allowing consumers to know what information companies are collecting about them, why they are collecting that data and who they are sharing it with. It also arms residents of the Golden State with the ability to tell tech behemoths such as Google and Facebook to delete their data, not to share their data or not to sell it. People can also opt out from a company's terms of service without losing access to its offerings. And companies are barred from selling data on anyone under the age of 16 without explicit consent. .... "
