Our CCPA Commitment
Truth in Data Remains Our Passion
Since day one Webbula has been committed to the highest possible standards when it comes to data security, safety, and responsibility. Our passion and our mission has always been, and will remain, Truth in Data – a statement that encapsulates everything we do on behalf of our customers and their data.
Our adherence to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) changes are just another opportunity for Webbula to demonstrate our commitment to protecting our customers data security and privacy, and empower consent in how that data is collected, recorded, and used.
Established in June 2018, the California Consumer Privacy act was created to establish a comprehensive privacy regulation in the state of California. The new law will take effect on January 1, 2020.
The CCPA empowers California residents with the right to:
If a data provider does business in the State of California they must align with all legal provisions in the CCPA. If they fail to align business practice to the legal framework they face stern economic penalty much like in the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation.
The CCPA law applies to any organization with data on California residents that meet one of three criteria:
There is not yet any kind of recognized CCPA certification scheme. Webbula is taking the necessary steps to ensure that it is in compliance with the CCPA.
Webbula will offer customers and partners a new CCPA Data Processing Addendum (“DPA”. Signing the DPA amends our standard terms of Service and Master Services Agreement (“MSA”) to reflect obligations required under the CCPA. This is the instrument that you can rely on to have certainty that Webbula will comply with the CCPA.
As CCPA approaches in 2020 our longstanding commitment to “Truth in Data” remains as strong as it ever has been during the last decade. We’re encouraged by this legislation and look forward to being compliant with CCPA, just like we are with GDPR.
To prepare for CCPA, Webbula is currently re-papering vendor contracts and working with vendors to ensure they are compliant. We are continuing to review our security measures, as we always do, to stay at the forefront of evolving industry standards and best practices.
CCPA seeks to address the overall lack of a comprehensive privacy regulation In the United States. White other state laws exist they tend to be sector-specific and rarely deal with business use, collection and sale of personal data.
“At Webbula we believe implementing the privacy related provisions of the CCPA into our everyday business processes, which help us become a better company, and allows us to service our customers more securely.” Jeremy Fox, Chief Information Security Officer at Webbula.
When appropriate, Webbula will offer a new CCPA Data Processing Addendum, which can supplement our prior MSA.
Webbula is committed to the responsible use of the information we obtain through our online and offline data resources. Webbula strives to protect the data we maintain and process through the implementation of industry standard security measures, technology controls and operational processes. The Privacy Center is an extension of Webbula’s continued Commitment of being at the forefront of responsible data practices.
