The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) takes effect on January 1, 2020. This new law creates greater privacy rights for California consumers including:
The right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared or sold;
The right to delete, or have deleted, personal information held by businesses;
The right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information;
The right to non-discrimination in terms of price or service when a consumer exercises a privacy right under CCPA.
What Businesses are Subject to the CCPA?
Businesses that fall under the CCPA include any business that meets one or more of the following conditions:
Has gross annual revenues in excess of $25 million;
Buys, receives, or sells the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices;
Derives 50 percent or more of annual revenues from selling consumers’ personal information.
If your business is subject to CCPA requirements, certain steps must be taken when collecting and handling consumer data. You can get the latest information and email updates at the CCPA website and in this two page summary.

I’ve been doing this ever since the first mobile phone rolled out years ago. It helps clear my mind, do some fun multitasking and get things done.
When I’m in depositions, hearings, or court, my team lets callers know I’ll be returning phone calls between 3-5 in the afternoon or maybe even 5-7 in the evening. Then, when my schedule allows, I’ll return calls while taking a late afternoon run or SUP (I use my AirPods). Mountain biking on the back trails, sitting in a jacuzzi, or just taking a walk, are also great opportunities to return calls.
When you do this, have fun. Let the other side know what you’re doing. When appropriate, joke around, give the other person a hard time for still being in the office and enjoy the process and conversation. Share your human side.
Returning calls during a late afternoon activity work well, and you’ll be amazed at just how many calls you get through if you keep things short and sweet.
Just don’t take or return calls while driving your car.
BTW, if you have any questions, call me. I’ll probably be returning calls between 3-5 today 😉
BTW, I used Quicc to auto caption this video. Click here if you want to try the service (yes, I’m a brand ambassador for the company but I only recommend services I believe in and use)
