The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) gives consumers more control over their own personal information by limiting the kind of data that businesses collect about them. These recently enacted regulations provide CCPA compliance guidance to companies and explain new privacy rights for California consumers, including:
As a California resident, you can ask businesses what personal information they have collected about you. You can ask them what they do with that information, you can ask them not to sell, and you can ask them to delete your personal information.
You also have the right to be notified, before or at the time businesses collect your personal information, of the types of personal information they are collecting and what they plan to do with it.
Importantly, businesses cannot discriminate against you for exercising these rights under the CCPA, and businesses cannot make you waive these rights. Businesses cannot deny goods or services, charge you a different price, or provide a different level or quality of goods or services.
Consumers should ask themselves the following questions:
Currently, only California residents have consumer rights under the CCPA, although congress is in the process of writing new federal legislation that mirrors much of the same consumer rights for as in the CCPA.
Personal information is information that identifies, relates to, or could reasonably be linked with you or your household. This information can include the following:
Personal information does not include publicly available information such as professional licenses and public real estate/property records.

Without personal data privacy violation class actions, large corporate defendants would be able to cause small amounts of harm over a large group of individuals without any risk of monetary penalty. By holding companies accountable for safely storing your personal information, every consumer will have more control over how their data is used in the future. Let’s fight for California consumer rights.
A Class Action is a lawsuit brought by an individual on behalf of all other similarly situated individuals. Rule 23 of the Federal and State Rules of Civil Procedure allows for Class Action lawsuits to resolve disputes in an efficient format.
Class Actions are typically filed when the amount of money in dispute for a single plaintiff would not justify litigating the case, but where the amount of damages of the entire class of Plaintiffs would justify the cost of litigation. Without class actions, large corporate defendants would be able to cause small amounts of harm over a large group of individuals without any risk of monetary penalty.
In order for a case to be certified as a Class Action, the Court must determine that the case is appropriate for class action treatment under Rule 23. There are different elements depending on whether the case is seeking monetary or injunctive relief. In general, the Court must find the following elements are satisfied:
Protecting sensitive personal information is getting more and more difficult, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. By forcing companies to become accountable for their lack of cybersecurity measures following data misuse and data breach incidents, consumers will have a more secure future.
Large companies control vast amounts of data, leaving nearly all Americans at risk when their personal data is compromised. If your financial, medical, or consumer information is misused, you may file a data privacy violation claim.
Filing Class Action lawsuits is a complex and serious legal course and can carry monetary sanctions if proper legal course is not followed. The Lyon Firm is dedicated to assisting plaintiffs work toward a financial solution to assist in compensating for damages sustained.
