GDPR & CCPA Compliance
This Site is regulated by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), both of which concern the collection of personal information online.
What Is “Personal Information”?
In recent years, the issue of the privacy of people’s personal information online has become more important. When you visit a website, that website usually collects personal information about you. “Personal information” essentially means any information that can identify who you are, including:
- Contact information, such as your name, e-mail address, shipping address, and telephone number.
- Financial details, like your debit card information and bank account number.
- Physical data, like your ethnicity, weight, and birthday.
- Browsing statistics, such as your IP address, Internet service provider, web browser version, and operating system version.
Businesses have many legitimate uses for this information, such as fulfilling product orders. But personal information is inherently valuable, which creates a financial incentive to collect, use, and sell it.
The misuse of personal information—and sometimes even the legitimate use of it—can threaten an individual’s right to privacy. It can also lead to security risks, such as the risk of identity theft. And it raises ethical questions about who should be able to control an individual’s personal information, and how they should be allowed to use it.
These problems have led to the creation of legal and regulatory safeguards like those established by the GDPR and CCPA.
What Is the GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation is a European Union regulation that creates rules for collecting and using personal information on the Internet. The GDPR protects anybody who is subject to oversight by EU regulations. (In other words, everybody who lives in the European Union.) A protected individual does not have to be a paying customer to be covered by the GDPR. All they have to do is visit a website that collects personal information about them.
The GDPR regulates any person, business, or other entity who collects this personal information, anywhere in the world. In practical terms this is very wide-reaching: Any company that does business in the EU, no matter where that company is based, is required to comply.
What Is the CCPA?
The California Consumer Privacy Act is the United States’ first major law protecting personal information. It shares many similarities with the GDPR, except that it specifically is for California residents.
What Are the Protections?
The GDPR and CCPA create several key protections for consumers:
- The right to know what personal information is collected about you, and the right to access that information yourself.
- The right to have your personal information deleted.
- The right to know when your personal information is being sold or shared, and the right to forbid this.
These are just the overarching protections. The GDPR and CCPA are both very extensive, with many detailed rules covering the specifics.
Physica Energetics Compliance
At Physica Energetics we comply with the GDPR and CCPA rules for everybody who visits our Site, regardless of where you live.
