My business is not based in California, do I need to comply with CCPA?
The CCPA applies to most businesses that collect or could potentially collect Californian customers personal information, whether or not the business itself is geographically located in California. Since IP addresses are considered personal information, this likely applies to any website with at least 50,000 unique visits per year from California.
What if my site does not process any data?
Can’t we use a generic document?
It’s not possible to use generic documents as your policy must describe in detail the specific data processing carried out by your site/app, and must also include the particular details of any third-party technologies (e.g., facebook Like buttons or Google Maps) specifically used by you.
When is it mandatory to have Terms and Conditions?
Can I copy and use a Terms and Conditions document from another site?
Because they are essentially a legally binding agreement, it is not only important to have one in place, but also necessary to ensure that it meets legal requirements and it matches your specific business processes, model, and remains up-to-date with the various laws referenced in its contents. Copy-pasting Terms and Conditions from other sites is very risky and could result in the document being void or unenforceable.
