The Delete Act (SB 362), signed into law by California Gov. Gavin Newsom on October 10, imposes additional disclosure and registration requirements on data brokers. It requires data brokers to support deletion requests through a central “deletion mechanism” managed by the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA). The law also empowers consumers to request deletion of their personal information from all registered data brokers with a single submission.
