These additional privacy protections include the right to correct and right to limit. CPRA also established the California Privacy Protection Agency (CPPA) to implement and enforce the CCPA. The CPPA is responsible for updating existing regulations and adopting new regulations. The Attorney General also retains civil enforcement authority.
