In April 2016, the European Parliament adopted a new standard to improve data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU).
Hotels or any type of business faces strict fines for not complying with the standards set by the General Data Protection Regulation, which provides greater predictability and efficiency for organizations that do business in the EU and offers guests increased data protection rights.
GDPR does not only apply to EU domestic business, but to ANY HOTEL worldwide providing rooms and services to European citizens.
The GDPR regulations take effect on May 25th, 2018.
