Note: The following section applies to residents of the European Economic Area only.

For the purposes of this section, Personal Information is equivalent to personal data, as it is defined in the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679).

Processing in the United States

The Site and the Services are operated by Impact Advisors in the United States and any Personal Information submitted through the Site or otherwise collected from you will result in the collection and processing of such information in the United States. As a result, if you are visiting a Site from the European Economic Area (or any country other than the United States), your Personal Information will cross an international boundary. The level of protection for your Personal Information in the United States may not be the same as the level of protection in your country.

Lawfulness of Processing

We collect, use, and otherwise process your Personal Information based on the following:

  • Based on your consent: In some cases, at the point at which you provide Personal Information, we may ask you for your consent to collect and process your Personal Information.  If you choose to provide us with your consent, you may later withdraw your consent (or opt-out) by contacting us as described below.  Please note that if you withdraw your consent it will not affect any processing of Personal Information that has already occurred.  Where we process your Personal Information based on consent, we may provide more detailed information to you at the time when we obtain your consent.
  • Compliance with applicable laws or performance of a contract: In specific circumstances, we may need to process your Personal Information to comply with a relevant law/regulation or to fulfill our obligations under a contract to which you are subject. Where we process your Personal Information to meet our legal obligations, you will likely not be permitted to object to this processing activity, but you will usually have the right to access or review this information unless it would impede our legal obligations. Where we are processing your Personal Information to fulfill our obligations under a contract to which you are a party (e.g., to provide you with our products and services), you might not be able to object to this processing, or if you do choose to opt-out or object to our processing, it may impact our ability to perform a contractual obligation that you are owed.
  • Our legitimate interest: We may process your Personal Information based on our legitimate interests in communicating with you and managing our interactions with you regarding our products and Services, research, and educational opportunities. In addition to other rights you may have as described below, you have the right to object to such processing of your Personal Information.  You can register your objection by contacting us as described below.

Your Data Protection Rights

We comply with applicable data protection laws and value your right to privacy. In furtherance of our obligations to you that flow from our data collection practices, if you are resident in the European Economic Area you are entitled to the following rights:

  • The right to access – You have the right to request copies of your Personal Information. We may charge you a small fee for this service.
  • The right to rectification – You have the right to request that we correct any information you believe is inaccurate. You also have the right to request that we complete the information you believe is incomplete.

  • Right to submit complaints to Supervisory Authorities – You have the right to lodge a complaint with an applicable data protection authority. If you reside in Europe, you have the right to lodge such a compliant in the European country of your habitual residence, place of work, or place of an alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of your Personal Information infringes applicable EU data protection laws. A list of all European supervisory authorities and their respective contact information is available here.
