"Privacy FAQs: Are work email addresses and business contact information governed by the CCPA?"

Andrey says, "Is business contact information covered by CCPA?

As CCPA personal information definition includes “professional and employment information”, according to David Zetoony at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP:

“The net result is that work email addresses that contain an employee’s name or business contact information, such as the employee’s name, job title, company, business address, work phone number, etc. are arguably covered within the definition of “personal information.” In contrast, generic business names, business addresses, generic email addresses or any other general business information, as long as the information has not been linked to an individual, are arguably not covered within the definition. So, for example, “” would most likely be considered “personal information” governed by the CCPA whereas “” would not, even if the latter is used by the same employee to communicate with the public.”
