California Privacy Laws

The California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act

(CA Civil Code §56 et seq) 

provides that Private Information about your health and healthcare is perhaps the most sensitive and personal kind of information collected.  California  State & Federal HIPAA  laws give us many rights to limit those who see our medical records.

Businesses are forbidden from trying to obtain medical information directly from an individual for direct marketing purposes without clearly and conspicuously disclosing how it will use and share that information, and without obtaining the consumer’s consent. (SB 1633 Civil Code    §1798.91)

Data Privacy Law


On Jan. 1, 2020, all Californians will be able to find out what personal information a business is collecting about them, their devices and their children.   Companies can still collect the data: what you buy; where you go, and when; all the photos you’ve ever taken; your emails, even the ones you deleted.  But what companies must now do is tell you what they’re collecting when you ask, and delete it all if you ask for that. However, some companies can deny your request to delete if the data is required in order to complete a financial transaction or protect against fraud.  What companies can’t do anymore, legally, is sell that data if you tell them not to NPR  *


California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) 

The intentions of the Act are to provide California residents with the right to:

  1. Know what personal data is being collected about them.
  2. Know whether their personal data is sold or disclosed and to whom.
  3. Say no to the sale of personal data.
  4. Access their personal data.
  5. Request a business to delete any personal information about a consumer collected from that consumer.[9]
  6. Not be discriminated against for exercising their privacy rights.  Wikipedia
