Webinar: Practical Recommendations for Holiday Rental Owners to Prepare for GDPR

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably have heard about GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation – which is the new EU data protection law that comes into effect on 25th May. Its application and adoption has become one of the hottest topics across a broad spectrum of industries. The travel industry is no exception.

You may think that this is only relevant to big companies such as Facebook - who have been in the headlines a lot recently for misusing people’s personal data, Google and Amazon, but it applies to EVERY business, big or small, that has personal or sensitive data on its customers in the EU. That means it affects the entire tourism industry from the travel industry giants like Booking.com, to Spain-Holiday.com, right down to the holiday rental homeowner who owns just one property. 

If you have searched on Google about how the new law affects you and your holiday rental business, there is every chance that you are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information (and misinformation) online, the scare-mongering threats of the risk of a €20 million fine for non-compliance, and you probably panicked by the prospect of how much it is going to cost you to implement the regulation to your business and promptly stuck your head back in the sand.

A Trip Down Memory Lane

The current law regarding data protection is the Data Protection Directive which was introduced over 20 years ago in 1995.

Indulge me for one nostalgic second while we take a trip down memory lane to how the internet looked back in 1995…

Google, MySpace, Facebook, YouTube and Hotmail didn’t exist yet...

Smart phones didn't exist. The Nokia 2110 was the mobile phone to have, with its cutting-edge ability to send SMS messages, although it would be another 2 years before the popular snake game was created...

Windows 95 was launched.  It took 13 floppy disks to install it!

Simpler times! One thing is for certain, the update to the data protection law is long overdue. The new law consists of the handling of personal data in all the member states of the European Union (and even post-Brexit UK).
