How do we make sure we are CCPA compliant? How would we go about creating a consent form like this (See video below) so the user can turn on and off cookies in Bubble? @eve maybe you can point us in the right direction on who to ask about this? Thanks!
Also, any other details on how to make sure we are CCPA compliant with Bubble would be great. It begins July 1st, 2020.
CCPA cookie consent
Unlike the GDPR, CCPA cookie consent is based on an opt-out mechanism, instead of an opt-in one. Thus, websites can load cookies, but are obliged to provide users with an easy way of opting out of them at any moment. The California Consumer Privacy Act requires businesses to inform consumers before or at the point of collection of their personal data, but does not require prior, explicit cookie consent. That’s why we’ve built Clym with the flexibility to either opt-in or opt-out depending on the geographic area where they are located.
Similarly to the GDPR, the CCPA prohibits the collection of consumers’ personal information for any other purposes or any other categories that the ones presented to the customer.
CCPA cookie requirements
As with the GDPR, strictly necessary cookies, the ones required to make websites function, do not require consent. It is advisable to disclose their use to the website visitors, but it is not required to allow them to deactivate these cookies, if without them, the website would not function properly.
Other types of cookies, such as functionality, performance, or analytics cookies should be optional.
What are GDPR and CCPA Cookie Consent Requirements?
Under GDPR, websites need to collect consent to utilize all cookies other than those absolutely necessary to the running of the site. GDPR has strict requirements for what counts as consent, requiring a “clear affirmative act” that users are opting-in to having their data collected. It’s no longer good enough to use a pre-checked box or a banner that tells the user that by continuing to use the website they agree to cookies. Additionally, when companies request consent, they must do so in a way that is “clear, concise, and not unnecessarily disruptive", meaning that your site can’t bury a consent mechanism in the middle of a lot of legal jargon.
Finally, under GDPR, websites must provide a way for users to withdraw their decision to grant data collection consent, aka the “right to be forgotten”.Under CCPA, data collected by cookies can count as personal information. While CCPA doesn’t require businesses to gain opt-in consent for cookies, it does require them to disclose what data is being collected by cookies and what is done with the data. Additionally, businesses need to take steps to comply with the right to opt-out of the sale of personal information collected by cookies.
To be compliant with privacy and cookies laws, your Cookies Policy or cookies clause should:
- disclose what types of cookies you (or any third parties) are using,
Yes, cookie policies are required to maintain compliance with both GDPR and CCPA.
