Brands Review Data Privacy Policies After $1.2 Million Sephora Settlement
Privacy & Data Security Chair Daniel M. Goldberg is quoted in the article, “Brands Review Data Privacy Policies After $1.2 Million Sephora Settlement” published by The Wall Street Journal. The article discusses the how companies are paying more attention to California’s data privacy laws after Sephora was penalized for alleged violations related to its targeted advertising. Daniel is quoted saying, “The biggest losers could be marketers at small-to-midsize businesses who did not realize that the regulations would apply to them. Many companies didn’t realize that the sharing of data could violate CCPA, even when they used tools like Google’s Marketing Platform that let users opt out of some targeted advertising. A separate point of contention for marketers was the fact that the CCPA’s definition of ‘sale’ included sharing consumer information with outside parties regardless of whether money is exchanged. Many companies delayed compliance because they disagree with that definition and don’t want to tell consumers that they sell data.”
The Sephora case also started new conversations about marketers’ use of behavioral data, as well as the Global Privacy Control tool. Daniel said, “California’s decision to require businesses to recognize GPC more than one year ago further complicated the compliance process, because CCPA didn’t initially contain any language related to the tool.”
