The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) was passed in 2018. The CCPA provides for many consumer privacy rights. It imposes many responsibilities on entities that collect and use personal data.
This policy applies to Data Subjects, whose personal information is collected and maintained by the District. More generally, the CCPA applies to any entity that collects or provides the personal information of California residents and meets one or more of the following criteria:
- Has $25 million or more in annual sales.
- Buys, sells, or shares information on 50,000 or more individuals, households, or devices.
- Derives more than half of its annual revenue from selling personal information
The Chief Privacy Officer is the privacy official for the Santa Rosa Junior College District, and ensures that the requirements in these policies are maintained in accordance.
All workforce members including employees, contracted staff, students and volunteers are responsible for ensuring that individuals comply with this policy. Violations of this policy will be reported to the SRJC Privacy Office. Reported violations will be investigated by the SRJC Privacy Office in collaboration with appropriate departments, such as the Office of General Counsel, Global Business Services or the Information Security Office. Workforce members who violate this policy may be subject to the appropriate disciplinary action up to and including termination.
