California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 – Not Quite GDPR, But Almost!

On 28 June 2018, the California State Legislature passed the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “Act”). The Act will become operative from 1 January 2020 and will (unless amended or repealed in the intervening time) introduce data privacy protections and requirements similar to, and in some cases broader, than those in relation to the personal data of citizens of the European Union (“EU”) under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), in respect of “…natural person[s] who [are] California resident[s]…” (“Californian Consumers”).
