Bloomreach’s Commitment to CCPA Compliance

 

Introduction to the CCPA

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”) was introduced to provide California consumers an effective way to exercise control over their personal information and to provide certain safeguards against misuse of personal information. The CCPA was effective as of January 1, 2020 and was further modified by the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), effective January 1, 2023. More information on the CCPA can be found here.

 

What the CCPA Means to Bloomreach

Bloomreach is committed to protecting the personal data of its employees, vendors, and customers. It is also paramount to Bloomreach that we assist customers in meeting their CCPA obligations. Our proactive approach to CCPA focuses on both our internal CCPA compliance as well as supporting our customers to ensure their own compliance.
