California Laws That Protect Data Breach Victims


California residents who received a Nuna Baby Essentials Data Breach Notice may be entitled to between $100 and $750 or their actual damages, whichever is greater. ¹


The California Customer Records Act (CCRA) requires businesses to put into place and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices that protect a consumer’s personal information. More comprehensively, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) contains many protections for the personal information of California residents.


For example, if credit card numbers, names and other types of personal information are disclosed, stolen, or hacked because a business didn’t fulfill its obligation to create and keep reasonable security, affected California residents can sue to protect their rights under the CCPA and CCRA.


Participants in data breach lawsuits can recover damages, injunctive relief (to make sure that the business has reasonable security practices to protect consumer data from being leaked again) and anything else a court concludes is necessary to compensate data breach victims and prevent these harms from occurring again.

FAQs

I hear about data breaches all the time, is there any point in trying to do something about it?

Yes. Seemingly innocuous personal information, like your zip code, gender and hobbies, can be combined with other data compiled by data brokers or other public information to identify you. A mere 3 credit card purchases (showing the date, location & price) have been shown to be enough to reveal all of a consumer’s purchases from a data set of 1.1 million people with over 90% accuracy.² Compromised data also increases the risk of hacking, phishing, and increased anxiety over future losses and identity theft.
