Facebook Adds New 'Limited Data Use' Setting to assist Businesses suits CCPA

With California's new data-privacy laws going into effect earlier this year (and the six-month grace period for compliance close to come to an end), Facebook is looking to assist businesses better manage their obligations under the CCPA by adding a replacement feature which will limit data usage for Californian residents.

"To support businesses with their compliance efforts, we’re introducing a replacement feature businesses can use to limit how we use the info they send to Facebook, called Limited Data Use. When a business applies this feature, it'll direct Facebook to process information about people in California because the business's Service Provider. meaning we'll limit how this information is processed as laid out in our State-Specific Terms."

The option means businesses can either inform Facebook when an individual in California has opted out of knowledge usage, or they will believe Facebook to work out a users' location, and omit Californian residents from data sharing.

"When Limited Data Use is enabled, businesses may notice an impression to campaign performance and effectiveness, and retargeting and measurement capabilities are going to be limited."

CCPA, which provides more protections for private data, complicates things for digital platforms, as they now need separate parameters for users in several regions. Though, of course, European users now come under the GDPR, which institutes separate, regional data protections already, so such changes aren't unprecedented.

Facebook says that there will be an initial transition period within which it'll automatically limit how it uses data businesses send about people in California. then , businesses will got to implement features if they need to change their data usage restrictions.

"The transition period will vary counting on the merchandise , except for most Business Tools it'll last until July 31."

Essentially, if you're unsure of your obligations, the 'Limit Data Use' option will mean that Facebook restricts data usage for Californian residents.
