§ 7001. Definitions.
In addition to the definitions set forth in Civil Code section 1798.140, for purposes of these regulations:
(a) “Agency” means the California Privacy Protection Agency established by Civil Code section 1798.199.10 et seq.
(b) “Alternative Opt-out Link” means the alternative opt-out link that a business may provide instead of posting the two separate “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” and “Limit the Use of My Sensitive Personal Information” links as set forth in Civil Code section 1798.135, subdivision (a)(3), and specified in section 7015.
(c) “Attorney General” means the California Attorney General or any officer or employee of the California Department of Justice acting under the authority of the California Attorney General.
(d) “Authorized agent” means a natural person or a business entity that a consumer has authorized to act on their behalf subject to the requirements set forth in section 7063.
(e) “Categories of sources” means types or groupings of persons or entities from which a business collects personal information about consumers, described with enough particularity to provide consumers with a meaningful understanding of the type of person or entity. They may include the consumer directly, advertising networks, internet service providers, data analytics providers, government entities, operating systems and platforms, social networks, and data brokers.
(f) “Categories of third parties” means types or groupings of third parties with whom the business shares personal information, described with enough particularity to provide consumers with a meaningful understanding of the type of third party. They may include advertising networks, internet service providers, data analytics providers, government entities, operating systems and platforms, social networks, and data brokers.
(g) “CCPA” means the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Civil Code sections 1798.100 et seq.
(h) “COPPA” means the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. sections 6501 to 6506 and 16 Code of Federal Regulations part 312.
(i) “Disproportionate effort” within the context of a business, service provider, contractor, or third party responding to a consumer request means the time and/or resources expended by the business, service provider, contractor, or third party to respond to the individualized request significantly outweighs the reasonably foreseeable impact to the consumer by not responding, taking into account applicable circumstances, such as the size of the business, service provider, contractor, or third party, the nature of the request, and the technical limitations impacting their ability to respond. For example, responding to a consumer request to know may require disproportionate effort when the personal information that is the subject of the request is not in a searchable or readily-accessible format, is maintained only for legal or compliance purposes, is not sold or used for any commercial purpose, and there is no reasonably foreseeable material impact to the consumer by not responding. By contrast, the impact to the consumer of denying a request to correct inaccurate information that the business uses and/or sells may outweigh the burden on the business, service provider, contractor, or third party in honoring the request when the reasonably foreseeable consequence of denying the request would be the denial of services or opportunities to the consumer. A business, service provider, contractor, or third party that has failed to put in place adequate processes and procedures to receive and process consumer requests in accordance with the CCPA and these regulations cannot claim that responding to a consumer's request requires disproportionate effort.
(j) “Employment benefits” means retirement, health, and other benefit programs, services, or products to which consumers and their dependents or their beneficiaries receive access through the consumer's employer.
(k) “Employment-related information” means personal information that is collected by the business about a natural person for the reasons identified in Civil Code section 1798.145, subdivision (m)(1). The collection of employment-related information, including for the purpose of administering employment benefits, shall be considered a business purpose.
(l) “Financial incentive” means a program, benefit, or other offering, including payments to consumers, for the collection, retention, sale, or sharing of personal information. Price or service differences are types of financial incentives.
(m) “First party” means a consumer-facing business with which the consumer intends and expects to interact.
(n) “Frictionless manner” means a business's processing of an opt-out preference signal that complies with the requirements set forth in section 7025, subsection (f).
(o) “Information practices” means practices regarding the collection, use, disclosure, sale, sharing, and retention of personal information.
(p) “Nonbusiness” means a person or entity that does not meet the definition of a “business” as defined in Civil Code section 1798.140, subdivision (d).
