Businesses Urge Flexible CCPA Enforcement in California AG Rulemaking

Communications Daily, December 10, 2019

By Adam Bender

Tech companies and advertisers made a last stand, raising concerns about the California Consumer Privacy Act before it takes effect Jan. 1. Comments were due Friday on implementing rules Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) proposed in October and that must be finalized by July 1 when enforcement begins.

The software industry wants to clarify service providers “may use personal information received from a business or consumer to serve another entity -- when a business or consumer directs it to,” said BSA | The Software Alliance. Allow providers to “combine information received from one or more businesses” when necessary, it said. Providers should have to respond only to customer requests sent by a business “to help avoid the privacy and security risks associated with requiring service providers to respond directly to consumers, with whom they generally lack a direct relationship.”
