Consumer Reports submitted comments to the California Privacy Protection Agency on its proposed regulations interpreting the California Privacy Rights Act. The CPRA was passed by a ballot initiative in 2020 and goes into effect next year. It expands existing privacy protections for California residents in a number of ways, including new protections for children and sensitive personal information.
CR is largely supportive of the proposed regulations and suggested additional language on the following topics:
- Opt-out preference signals
- Consent and dark patterns
- Consumer complaints
- Requests to opt out and limit the use of sensitive personal information, and
- Data minimization and purpose limitation
