Companies around the world should start preparing for the Iowa Consumer Data Protection Act with respect to personal data of consumers in Iowa. With the Iowa Act, Iowa follows the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended by the California Consumer Rights Act of 2020, but excludes consumers acting in a commercial or employment context. Businesses that have implemented measures to comply with the CCPA and other US state privacy laws can leverage some of their existing vendor contract terms, website disclosures and data subject rights response processes to satisfy requirements under the Iowa Act. The Iowa Act becomes effective January 1, 2025 and does not include a look-back period for violations.

Many digital advertising arrangements that companies commonly use may qualify as “selling” or “sharing for cross context behavioral advertising” personal information under the California Consumer Privacy Act in California and laws in a few other US states (Nevada, Virginia, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah). Businesses state in their online privacy disclosures whether they sold or shared personal information in the last 12 months and whether they will sell or share personal information. Businesses that “sell” or “share” personal information, or use or disclose consumers’ sensitive personal information for non-exempt purposes have to treat user-enabled global privacy controls as a valid opt-out request.
Companies around the world have to comply with the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA) with respect to personal data of consumers in Virginia.

On 1 January 2023, the California Consumer Privacy Act as revised by the California Privacy Rights Act will take effect fully in the job applicant and employment context.
And with respect to job applicants and personnel, businesses subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act will be required to (i) issue further revised privacy notices, (ii) be ready to respond to data subject requests, (iii) have determined if they sell or share for cross context behavioral advertising personal information about them, and (iv) have determined if they use or disclose sensitive personal information about them outside of specific purposes. If employers sell, share for cross-context behavioral advertising, or use or disclose sensitive personal information outside of limited purposes, numerous additional compliance obligations apply.

Businesses that have implemented measures to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended by the California Consumer Rights Act of 2020 (CCPA) can leverage some of their existing vendor contract terms, website disclosures and data subject rights response processes to satisfy requirements under the Colorado Privacy Act (CPA). However, the CPA, and the recently published proposed CPA Rules, contain certain unique and prescriptive requirements that may warrant taking a CPA-specific approach to compliance. How the finalized CCPA regulations and CPA Rules look will largely dictate whether companies will need to expand or change the scope of their privacy compliance measures to meet the obligations set forth under both California’s and Colorado’s privacy regimes.
