Every company that works or deals with consumer data in the EU must comply with The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR is European legislation created to protect the data of all European Union (EU) citizens. The compliance requirements cover the following principles: Fairness and Transparency, Lawfulness, Data Minimization, Purpose limitation, Accuracy, Storage limitation, Integrity and Confidentiality, and Accountability. A few examples of these principles include collecting only the data that is required for business, storing accurate and current consumer information, and disposing of consumer data upon request ("Right to be forgotten").
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a law pertaining to many companies collecting consumer data from California residents. CCPA's intent is to protect California citizens from immoral personal data collection and improper use of personal information, while allowing individuals to prevent their data from being sold. The following must be provided to the user, according to CCPA regulations: The disclosure of personal information must be disclosed, an option to opt-out of selling their information must be available, and the company must obtain consent to sell the consumer's data.
