2. What does CCPA/CPRA apply to?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and its successor, the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), aim to protect the privacy rights of residents of California, United States. These laws establish certain rights and obligations concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information.
Both the CCPA and CPRA provide protection for consumers, broadly defined as natural persons who are California residents. The laws grant these individuals several rights, including the right to know what personal information is being collected about them, the right to opt-out of the sale of their personal information, the right to access and delete their personal information, and the right to non-discrimination for exercising their privacy rights.
It is important to note that CCPA/CPRA protection is specifically for California residents and does not extend to individuals residing outside of California or outside the United States.¹
3. What is the CCPA/CPRA?
The CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) is a state law enacted in California in 2018 to enhance privacy rights and consumer protection for California residents. The CPRA (California Privacy Rights Act) is an updated version of the CCPA, which was approved by California voters in November 2020. The CPRA expands and strengthens privacy rights and imposes additional obligations on businesses.
4. What is the difference between the CCPA and the CPRA?
The CPRA builds upon the CCPA and introduces additional privacy rights and obligations for businesses. The CPRA establishes the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) to enforce and implement the law
5. Sale of personal information under CCPA.
For purposes of the CCPA, Unbounce does not “sell” personal information, nor do we have actual knowledge of any “sale” of personal information of minors under 16 years of age.
6. What does it mean to be a service provider or a business as per CCPA?
The CCPA makes a distinction between “businesses” (analogous to “controllers” under the GDPR) and “service providers” (analogous to “processors” under the GDPR). Under the CCPA, businesses have direct obligations to consumers, while service providers support the data processing of the business and are restricted to only process personal information as permitted by the business in its contract.

- Right to Non-Discrimination: Businesses are prohibited from discriminating against consumers who exercise their privacy rights. Consumers must be treated equally, regardless of whether they exercise their rights under the CCPA/CPRA.
- Right to Correct: Consumers may ask businesses to correct inaccurate information that they have about you.²

14. Does CCPA apply to your business as an Unbounce customer?
