What is the US equivalent of the GDPR?

The US equivalent of the GDPR is the CCPA. The CCPA (or California Consumer Privacy Act) was inspired by the GDPR, and both laws were created to protect the personal data of online consumers.

The GDPR applies to businesses that collect data from users in the EEA (European Economic Area), while the CCPA applies to businesses that collect data from California residents.
