Wix and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
Wix.com is 100% committed to data protection. That’s why we welcome the California Consumer Privacy ACT (CCPA), which was passed by the state of California and came into effect on Jan 1 2020.
What is the CCPA?
The California Consumer Privacy Act aims to protect the consumer rights of California residents. The act serves to encourage stronger privacy for consumers and promote greater transparency for companies who have an online presence in the state.
