Keypoint: In only its second public enforcement settlement, the California Attorney General announced a $375,000 fine along with injunctive relief.
On February 21, 2024, the California Attorney General announced that it had reached a settlement with a company, resolving allegations that the company violated the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA). This is only the second time the Attorney General’s office has publicly announced a settlement. In August 2022, the office announced a settlement over allegations that a company failed to disclose that it was selling consumers’ personal information and failed to process opt-out requests via user-enabled global privacy controls.
In announcing the enforcement action, Attorney General Bonta stated “I hope today’s settlement serves as a wakeup call to businesses: The CCPA has been in effect for over four years now, and businesses must comply with this important privacy law. Violations cannot be cured, and my office will hold businesses accountable if they sell data without protecting consumers’ rights.”
