As you may know, on May 25th, 2018, the European Union implemented stronger data protection rules that affirm and strengthen the privacy rights of EU citizens. These rules extend to entities based outside the EU, including US-based organizations like ImpactAssets. In addition, the California Consumer Privacy Act took effect in January 1, 2020 to protect the data and privacy of California consumers.
