Assembly Bill 1416 (Cooley) amends the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, scheduled to take effect next year. AB 1416 provides that the Consumer Privacy Act does not restrict a business’s ability comply with any rules or regulations. Additionally, the bill specifies that the act does not restrict a business’s ability to collect, use, retain, sell, authenticate, or disclose personal information in order to: (1) exercise, defend, or protect against legal claims, (2) protect against or prevent fraud or unauthorized transactions, (3) protect against or prevent security incidents or other malicious, deceptive, or illegal activity, or (4) investigate, report, or prosecute those responsible for protecting against fraud, unauthorized transactions, and preventing security incidents or other specified activities. Under AB 1416, a business’s ability to collect, use, retain, sell, authenticate, or disclose a consumer’s personal information for the purpose of assisting another person or government agency to conduct specified activities would not be restricted.
