A CCPA Privacy Notice Generator generates privacy notices that are fully compliant with the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) which came into effect on January 1, 2020. The tool replaces the need to manually draft privacy notices for individual websites, online forms and other communications, which is an otherwise onerous and time-consuming task. The tool has access to a host of clauses and statements which can then be adjusted and arranged in a coherent manner to cover every instance of a company’s bespoke type of data processing. Its modular logic can easily be edited and updated to accommodate changing laws and to accommodate new tools and types of data processing.

Background

Under the CCPA, companies are obliged to provide a privacy notice to all persons whose personal data they are processing. The CCPA mandates how such a privacy notice must be provided. Not only does it clearly enlist the information that must be made available to the affected persons, but also stipulates the nature of language in such notices – concise, transparent and intelligible language. Depending on the way a company collects personal data, the obligations on what the privacy notice should contain vary. Non-compliant companies may face substantial fines of up to USD 7.500per violation and affected consumer.

With BRYTER, companies can build an automated CCPA Privacy Notice Generator which uses legally accurate clauses as building blocks of unique privacy notices that cover all scenarios of data processing. The user is guided through a series of questions and these inputs determine what type of privacy notice is required and which clauses are inserted. Due to the open architecture of the BRYTER platform, the embedded clauses and the tool’s modular logic can easily be amended. This means that the onerous task of manual drafting of individual privacy policies is replaced by a simple process of maintaining the accuracy of the tool’s logic to ensure its compliance with changing legal requirements.
