If You Want Personal Info from CA Residents, You Need a Privacy Policy

Seal of the California Attorney General, who addressed privacy policy requirements

Any Website provider or online service – including any mobile app – that collects personally identifiable information from users residing in California needs to have a privacy policy. And that privacy policy must be posted conspicuously. The details are set forth in Business and Professions Code Sections 22575 through 22579.

Personally identifiable information includes, but is not necessarily limited to:

  • Email address
  • Telephone number
  • Social security number
  • Any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of a specific individual
