+ ### What is the CCPA? ###
150
+ The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a state-wide law that regulates how businesses all over the world are allowed to handle the personal information of California residents.
151
+
152
+ You are liable for CCPA compliance if your business:
153
+
154
+ * Sells the personal information of more than 50,000 California residents per year,
155
+ * Has an annual gross revenue exceeding $25 million,
156
+ * Derives more than 50 percent of its annual revenue from the selling of personal information of California residents.
157
+
158
+ Cookies and other tracking technologies are classified as unique identifiers that form part of the CCPA’s definition of personal information.
159
+
160
+ If your business has a website, you must know and disclose to consumers, at or before the point of collection, the data you collect and which third parties you share it with. This can be done through the Cookiebot cookie declaration that also features the required Do Not Sell My Personal Information link, so end-users can opt out of having their data sold.
161
+
162
+ If your website is visited by consumers under the age of 16, you are required by the CCPA to first obtain their opt-in. This can be done through Cookiebot’s CCPA opt-in banner.
163
+
164
+ Visit [Cookiebot](https://www.cookiebot.com/en/what-is-ccpa/) to read more about the CCPA, how to achieve CCPA compliance, and what the CCPA says about your website’s use of cookies.
