U.S. Privacy: The CCPA and the GDPR: Overlaps and Gaps to Consider in Your Harmonized Privacy Program

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) outlines new privacy rights for consumers and requirements for data handlers around the protection of personal data. While in certain ways CCPA does overlap with the GDPR, there are several key differences, as well as notable exemptions, that businesses should know about. For instance, CCPA and the GDPR have varying definitions of personal data and different consumer (or data subject) rights. Additionally, only certain California businesses are within scope of CCPA while the GDPR applies to any organization that processes the personal data of citizens within the European Union.
