Words Matter: Contract Drafting for Consumer Privacy Compliance Under the CCPA, CPRA, and VCDPA


Created on August 23, 2021





As businesses continue to implement the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") and prepare for California's Consumer Privacy Rights Act ("CPRA") and the Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act ("VCDPA"), one key but often overlooked component of compliance is the implementation of effective contracts with third parties related to data processing. This blind spot often exposes businesses to legal and reputational risk while leaving their consumers' data unprotected.

This program will investigate the contractual obligations imposed on businesses by the CCPA, CPRA, and VCDPA. With a particular emphasis on business-service provider agreements, it will provide meaningful insights for navigating the differences between the various regulatory frameworks when contracting and highlight common pitfalls. The course will also offer sample contractual provisions that attorneys may use to work through these challenges. 

This course will benefit both in-house and external privacy and corporate counsel.
