Webbula is Committed to CCPA

Webbula is committed to providing secure services by implementing and adhering to prescribed compliance policies. The upcoming CCPA enforcement is critical to our mission of providing not only California Citizens but our global customers with safe and dependable data quality. For more information or questions about the Webbula Privacy Policy, please contact privacy@webbula.com.

What is Truth in Data? 

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.

What is California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)?

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:

  • Understand who their personal data has been disclosed to.
  • Learn what personal data a company has about them.
  • Determine what third-parties their personal data has been sold to.
  • Right to Access- California residents can opt-out of such transactions or request their data be deleted altogether.

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.

Who does the CCPA Law Apply to? 

The CCPA law applies to any organization with data on California residents that meet one of three criteria: 

  • Your business’ annual revenue is over $25 million
  • Your business receives information over 50,000 consumers, households, or devices annually. 
  • At least half of your business’ annual revenue comes from selling personal information.

Is there a CCPA Certification?

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. 

What is Webbula doing to ensure that it is compliant 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.

How can Webbula guarantee I will be able to use Webbula after the CCPA comes into effect? 

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.
