The CPRA, which modified the CCPA, uses the term “right to know” and “right to access” synonymously.1 The regulations implementing the CCPA use the phrase “request to know” exclusively. Most data privacy attorneys use the term “access rights” and requests for such information as “access requests,” as those terms have historically been used within the data privacy community and align terminology with other legal regimes (e.g., the European GDPR).
