California Attorney General Unveils Fresh Privacy Rules Proposal

Feb. 8, 2020, 1:06 AM

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra released an updated set of draft rules for how companies must follow the state’s landmark privacy law.

Becerra (D) modified the draft rules he unveiled last October by adding new examples of how companies can give notice to consumers about data collection. The update also contains new examples of how internet protocol addresses may be considered personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act.

Companies and privacy advocates are watching Becerra’s development of the rules in advance of July 1, when he will be empowered to start enforcing the law that took effect Jan. 1. His new draft gives a clearer picture of of what the final rules will look like.

Becerra set a Feb. 24 deadline for public comments on the modified proposed rules.
