Simplify Your Path to VCDPA Compliance

This act provides Virginia residents with rights regarding the use and protection of their personal data.

Protection Act: A Crucial Step for Businesses

Data privacy has become a paramount concern for consumers and businesses as the digital landscape evolves. The Virginia Consumer Data Protection Act (VCDPA) is a comprehensive legal framework designed to protect the personal data of Virginia residents. This article explores the VCDPA's critical aspects, identifies who is affected, and explains how Cocoon CS can help businesses achieve compliance.

What is the VCDPA?

The VCDPA, effective January 1, 2023, establishes rights for consumers and obligations for businesses that process personal data. This law aims to give Virginia residents more control over their personal information and ensure that businesses handle data responsibly.
The VCDPA grants consumers rights to access, correct, delete, and obtain copies of personal data and to opt out of data processing for targeted advertising or sale. It requires businesses to conduct data protection assessments, ensure data minimization and security, and maintain transparent privacy notices.

Who is Affected by the VCDPA?

The VCDPA applies to businesses operating in Virginia that handle data of at least 100,000 consumers or derive over 50% of revenue from selling data of at least 25,000 consumers.
