    [$$] From Restaurants to Insurers, the Race to Comply With New GDPR Privacy Rules

    As Europe’s new privacy law, known as GDPR, is set to take effect Friday, the focus has been on expected battles with technology giants such as Facebook Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google. The new General Data Protection Regulation is forcing hundreds of thousands of companies—multinationals such as Mastercard Inc. and insurer Allianz SE, but also small manufacturers and even restaurants—to change how they gather and handle information about Europeans, even if the companies have no physical footprint in Europe. “I don’t think that we as a company realized the full magnitude of what the law would require,” said Paul Delson, chief compliance officer for First Solar Inc., a Tempe, Ariz., solar-panel maker.

    Sports Gambling's Next Hurdle Is Credit Cards After Court Ruling

    The Supreme Court ruled this week that states can allow betting on individual sporting events, but gamblers who want to place those wagers using a credit card face a major hurdle: The largest U.S. issuers, including JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc. and American Express Co., don’t yet allow their cards to be used for sports gambling. “We will closely watch developments from the ruling and will consider any implications to our policy as the states put their own processes in place,” Mary Jane Rogers, a spokeswoman for JPMorgan, said in an emailed statement. Americans illegally bet an estimated $150 billion on sports games each year, a figure that’s enticing for credit-card issuers looking to gin up extra spending by their customers.
