The California Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) is getting a big new enforcement tool: consumers armed with a new complaint form.
California Attorney General Kamala Harris (D)—who is seeking to represent California in the U.S. Senate—announced Oct. 14 that California will launch a new online tool that makes it easier for consumers to report websites, apps and other online services that violate CalOPPA.
“However, CalOPPA actually has a unique cure provision, so even if consumers make complaints, it is possible that a company may not yet have liability,” he said.
The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) conducted a study that found in 2016 that found that the number of apps with privacy policies rose from 30 percent to 80 percent since California entered into an international mobile app agreement in 2012 that included Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Apple Corp. and Amazon, among other leading app platforms.
