EPIC celebrates January 28, International Privacy Day, which commemorates the signing of Convention 108, on January 28, 1981. The Privacy Convention was the first binding international treaty for privacy and data protection. EPIC and consumer organizations have called on the United States to ratify Convention 108. NGOs and Privacy experts have also expressed support for the Madrid Declaration, a substantial document that reaffirms international instruments for privacy protection, identifies new challenges, and calls for concrete actions.
