The CCPA requires that each company must establish and maintain a toll-free number to allow consumers to contact your company in order to enforce their rights under the CCPA. We will provide a dedicated toll-free number (i.e. 1-800 number) and back end support services.

The CCPA requires that your company establish a second channel of contact for consumer requests under the CCPA. We will host and manage a designated email address that qualifies as a second line of communication for your consumers.
Our company will take in consumer requests by telephone or email and verify the consumer requests based on your company's criteria and in compliance with the verification requirements established by the CCPA.

WHO THIS AFFECTS
The CCPA applies worldwide to companies that do business with California residents and for which one or more of the following are true:
Have annual gross revenues in excess of $25 million
Possess the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices
Earn more than half of their, annual revenue from selling consumers' personal information
PENALTIES FOR NON-COMPLIANCE
Non-compliance with the CCPA puts you at risk of huge ﬁnes.
You can expect the Attorney General to initiate a civil case against you if you remain non-compliant after 30 days upon being notified about any violation of the CCPA provisions. This brings a risk of being fined $2500 per violation and up to $7500 per intentional violation.
If you violate the CCPA-guaranteed rights of 1000 users, you may receive a fine of up to $7.500.000 in total ($7500×1000 users).
The CCPA also allows for individual consumers to bring a private right of action if their personal information was exposed due to a company’s failure to maintain appropriate security safeguards and can be aggregated into a class action lawsuit.
Damages under the CCPA are based on per instance or per capita violation. That means that the number of persons the violations were directed at will be the multiplier for damages calculations.
Intentional damages carry a higher cap of $7500 per instance.
Private Right of Action
Consumers may also bring a private lawsuit against your company for failure to maintain adequate security for protection of their personal information under the new law. Damages will be recoverable if their recovery exceeds the statutory damages against your company. The private right of action may also be brought by multiple consumers as a class action of those affected.
