On August 24, 2022, the California attorney general’s (AG) office published 13 new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) enforcement case examples. The new enforcement examples supplement the 27 examples the AG published in July 2021, also covered in our previous blog. The new case examples provide a rare glimpse into the AG’s past year of CCPA enforcement activities, and may forecast potential enforcement under the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA). With the CCPA’s 30-day right to cure ending on January 1, 2023, businesses subject to the CCPA (and soon the CPRA) should review these case examples as part of their ongoing compliance efforts

The settlement is part of the AG’s ongoing, aggressive enforcement of the CCPA. In his announcement of the settlement, the AG stated that the enforcement action should send “a strong message to businesses that are still failing to comply with California’s consumer privacy law” and that his office will hold them accountable for violations. The AG also stated that there are “no more excuses” for non-compliance. As a result, businesses should expect increased enforcement in this area.
