WIP: running a CCPA-in
13 November 2020
Something to keep in mind for when they open up street fairs again. Could also run this as a local public library event or trade show booth.
- laser printer (office type with low cost/page)
- one box per company
- generator (if at a street fair)
How it works.
Hook up the hardware.
Label the boxes with the addresses of the companies to be opted out of.
For each user:
User goes up to the computer, opens a simple web application, and types in their info.
User can preview a sample CCPA letter on screen.
User approves their contact info as it appears on the sample letter.
Application generates a multi-page PDF, one company opt-out per page, and prints.
User signs each page and hands back to a volunteer
Volunteer puts each page in the appropriate company's box.
At the end of the event:
A volunteer seals up each box of letters
A volunteer takes each box to the appropriate company (if local) or ships it.
This should be able to do CCPA letters at under a dime each. Under one cent for the paper, three or four cents in printing costs, about three cents per page for shipping if a large number are packed and shipped together.
This could also be set up as a kiosk with a drop box for step 5 and just come around every so often to empty it and ship out a batch.
