CPA (Colorado Privacy Act)

Compliance is Easier Than Ever

Colorado passed their privacy act on July 8, 2021, with enforcement pegged on July 1, 2023. The Colorado Privacy Act (CPA) is a privacy protection law to secure Coloradans’ data rights. It places certain obligations on businesses processing customers’ data. Are you ready?

What is in the Colorado Privacy Act?

To comply with the state’s new data privacy law, companies conducting business in Colorado must perform a privacy impact assessment and update their privacy policies. Moreover, they must provide a universal opt-out option, integrate consent management, and set up procedures for responding to customers’ data requests.  

Although it only takes effect in July 2023, the requirements list is lengthy. Preparing for the transition in advance would be best since legacy equipment won’t implement CPA compliance effectively.

Consumer Rights in the Colorado Privacy Act

The Colorado data privacy act establishes many privacy rights, such as the right to access, rectify, opt out of the collection, and delete private data. Further, it provides the right to data portability, strengthening the protection of Colorado customers’ data protection.  

It also sets obligations on businesses, such as openness, purpose specification, data minimization, no discrimination, and the usage of sensitive data on data controllers.  

Embrace Opt-Out Requests and Keep Tabs on Them

You can use website geo-targeting with automated data subject request intake and processing. It ensures your website presents proper opt-out controls, such as “do not sell,” “do not profile,” and “do not process for targeted advertising requests” to Colorado citizens. 

It is vital to keep tabs on verifiable customer consent to prevent the unlawful exchange of personal information and to update and amend data across all relevant systems.
