OneTrust Data Guidance, a global leader in privacy and data protection, published an article today authored by Severson shareholders Genevieve Walser-Jolly and Scott Hyman on the proportionality doctrine under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”).  Specifically, the CPRA amended the CCPA to provide additional consumer regarding their data, but a company should not have to expend ‘Disproportionate effort’ to respond to a consumer request where the time and/or resources expended by the business to respond to the individualized request significantly outweighs the benefit provided to the consumer by responding to the request. (11 Cal Code Regs §7001(i)).
