Facebook has announced that it is introducing a new feature businesses can use to limit how they use the data they send to Facebook, called “Limited Data Use,”  with the result that Facebook would process the information as a “service provider” under the California Consumer Privacy Act. (CCPA)

To give businesses time to implement Limited Data Use, Facebook has initiated a transition period during which the default setting for California users will be that of the “limited use.” The transition period will vary depending on the product, but for most services it will last until July 31. After the transition period, businesses will need to implement the feature to continue data use restrictions the participating services.

Google implemented a similar solution called “Restricted data processing” for some of its services.
