What’s Included in VCDPA?


Right to Correction and Appeal

Along with the right to access, erasure, and portability, Virginians also have the right to correct inaccurate information. Additionally, consumers can appeal to businesses that have failed to process a privacy request within 45 days.

Data Processing Agreements (DPAs)

Companies are required to enter into Data Processing Agreements (DPAs) with third-parties. Third-parties, or “data processors” are “a natural or legal entity that processes personal data on behalf of a controller.”

Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)

VCDPA states that businesses operating in Virginia or targeting Virginians must produce Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs) that examine the privacy benefits and risks of processing activities on the business itself, consumers, and third-parties.

Virginia’s State Privacy Law

The Virginia Consumer Data Privacy Act (VCDPA or CDPA) was the second state privacy law to go into effect this year on January 1, 2023.

VCDPA borrows heavily from CCPA (before the CCPA amendments). If your business has already prepared for CCPA, you’re well on your way to comply with Virginia’s privacy law.

However, compliance with one state privacy law does not mean compliance to another. Your business needs tonsure it’s collecting, processing, and storing user data in a way that respects Virginians' privacy rights.

We will go over the unique provisions of Virginia's state privacy law and how Ethyca can help your business comply easily.
