California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) Are you doing what is required

Have you got your Privacy Act straight? You may have heard of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) that came from Europe and now the newest Privacy law going into effect January 1, 2020 is the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act). This new privacy law will apply to certain businesses which collect personal identifiable information from residents of California. 

If you collect this data from your website, or CRM etc it will become crucial that you observe the law and follow the rules. 

Here are a few great resources that do a nice job of explaining this so you can be ready and in compliance if necessary. I think the 3rd resource helped me the very most.

Preparing Your Organization for California’s New Privacy Law 

California is the first state to pass a comprehensive consumer privacy law with far-reaching implications. First, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) can affect organizations without a physical location in California. Second, it may push other states to accelerate passage of similar laws, as well as cause Congress to pass a national privacy law.

That's Who We R - National Association of Realtors

National Association of Realtors Unveils “That’s Who We R” National Ad

The National Association of Realtors launches the "That's Who We R" National Ad Campaign

That's Who We R - National Association of Realtors

I have been waiting to see these since Inman Connect in New York where they announced they were putting the final touches on these and they would soon be sharing them in a national campaign. 

The campaign has a 60 second and a 30 second version that I have seen. Both versions focus on  helping the consumer understand the differences between a Realtor and a real estate agent and highlights what Realtors care about.

60-Second Ad

30-Second Ad

A Realtor and a real estate agent are drastically different. A Realtor promises to abide by the Associations Code of Ethics and join NAR (National Association of Realtors). The NAR Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice is a pledge of honesty, integrity, professionalism and community service as a true partner for buying or selling a home or property" said John Smaby. 2019 President. NAR. 

From the Video the Code of Ethics:

  • "Encourages us to be community advocates and fight for safer neighborhoods"
  • "Inspires us to stand up for  our veterans so they have a home they deserve"
  • "That built a relief foundation for families affected by  natural disasters"
  • "Puts ethics at the core of every business decision"
  • "Fuels us to work with lawmakers to protect property rights"
  • "Because we believe owning a house is part of the American dream"
  • "Is what we stand for"

Finally a public campaign about the huge distinctions between a Realtor and a real estate agent. Is it enough to make consumers look for a Realtor as the trusted professional to help them when buying or selling their home.

Side Note: A licensed real estate agent is not required to become a member of NAR or abide by the Code of Ethics & Standards of Practice. To become a real estate agent in most states requires a minimum of 30 or more hours of classroom instruction and a needs to pass a an official exam.
