California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Screening Tool: Help organizations in preparing for the California Consumer Privacy Act

Help determining whether the CCPA will apply to a business' operations

This new law marks a dramatic sea change in American privacy law, as it imposes significant new burdens on organizations that collect, use or share data on California residents. In addition to imposing significant statutory penalties for non-compliance, the CCPA creates an unprecedented right for consumers to bring class actions if their data is compromised in a breach, even if there are no actual damages. By imposing automatic statutory penalties for each affected consumer if a company fails to implement reasonable security practices and procedures, the CCPA is expected to create potentially enormous class action liability for companies suffering a breach. Dorsey offers clients legal services ranging from individualized advice on discrete issues to fixed-fee suites of services for CCPA-related compliance projects.

This is a web-based CCPA Screening Tool, built in Neota, to help organizations when they were preparing for the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which went into effect on January 1, 2020.

Companies can determine whether the CCPA applies to their operations by using the screening tool available on Dorsey’s website. This free tool is available to all organizations and typically takes less than five minutes to complete. It parses the CCPA into four threshold questions, and upon completion of the questionnaire, the tool provides a free report on whether the act applies to your organization based on the answers provided.
