How the CCPA Works

Leveraging the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is simple - but you must take action.

As a Californian the only step you need to take is to make a request of a business subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). There are several ways to potentially make your request:

  • Opt-out web form on the business website
  • Toll-free phone number for the business
  • Email
  • Physical mail

"Do Not Sell My Personal Information" Link

Many businesses are required to have a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on their homepage that enables you to opt-out, delete, and access your information. It is typically found at the bottom of their page.


Note: Many businesses are not making this easy. Some are hiding their opt-out forms behind layers of links, or burying it in long web pages.
