The state of California is taking action. Attorney General Kamala D. Harris released a guide, “Making Your Privacy Practices Public,” encouraging businesses to comply with this state’s privacy law that went into effect on January 1st of this year. This law recommends that businesses use straightforward, easy-to-understand language, avoid legal jargon and provide full disclosure about who’s collecting what data and why.
