GDPR has become one of the hottest topics. Every company, organization or agency is asking how will the new data protection regulation affect their business. Time flies; only two days left until the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is enforced.
The aim of the GDPR is to strengthen data protection for EU citizens and residents and to give them greater control of their personal data. Keep in mind, even if you are not based in the EU, it applies to your company if you have customers coming from the EU.
GDPR is important for tour operators, activity providers and other professionals in the travel industry. Tour operators share customers' personal data on a daily basis as it is a part of the booking process.
We already created an eBook about GDPR and how it can affect your tour business.
In this eBook, you will find how to become GDPR compliant. Additionally, to give you an extra push we have created GDPR consents within the Orioly app.
