This week, AFSA’s State Government Affairs (SGA) team sent a letter to the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) regarding CPPA’s modified privacy regulations. In the letter, AFSA requested that the CPPA provide strong assurances that a company’s good faith effort to comply with the regulations be considered in enforcement decisions. Furthermore, AFSA requested an extension of the employee and B2B data exemption and that the agency remove sections that conflict with existing statute.

AFSA also sought further clarity on implementation of provisions regarding the use of sensitive personal information, collection notices, archived or backup systems, risk assessments, and the automated decision making technology. 

This letter, along with SGA’s other recent letters, can be found on the direct advocacy section of AFSA’s website.
