What Marketers Need to Know about California Prop 24
Prop 24, the Consumer Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), is a revision to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) that won voter approval in California on Tuesday with 56% of the vote. Ronan Shields covered the story for AdWeek and provides context for the update. Core CPRA principles include:
- More protection of California residents’ personally identifiable information, including ethnicity, health, race, religion, sexual orientation, and union membership.
- Greater protection for the information of minors, including the tripling of maximum fines for violations.
- Limitations on lobbyists’ attempts to dilute privacy protection measures.
- Establishment of an agency to enforce the privacy requirements.
