What is CalOPPA?
CalOPPA is an acronym for California Online Privacy Protection Act. This law has been drafted to safeguard "identifiable personal information" for Californian residents and is currently considered the broadest privacy law in the US.
Several federal laws in the US affect online platforms, websites, blogs, and mobile apps. All platforms collecting personal data online must comply with CalOPPA due to the probability of California residents using these platforms.
What is "personal identifiable information" as per CalOPPA?
CalOPPA defines personal information as in:
1- First and Last Name
2- Physical Address
3- Billing Address
4- Landline Number
5- Mobile Number
6- Social Security Number
7- Physical Description as in age, weight, height, hair color …
8- IP address
And the list goes on - any direct and indirect information that can identify a person.
This should also include your users' locations and your data management policies.
1- Details of the type of personal data collected through your platform
2- Third parties with whom you share personal data
3- Clear instructions on users' data changes or corrections
