How the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Impacts U.S. Hotels

Homepage Homepage Homepage Homepage Homepage Homepage Homepage Homepage

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), which was adopted by the European Union (EU) and went into effect May 25, 2018, aims primarily to give control to EU citizens and residents over their personal data. In simple terms, the GDPR regulates the processing by an individual, a company, or an organization of personal data relating to individuals in the EU. 

These extensive personal-data protection regulations impact any business that uses the personal data of EU citizens — regardless of whether the business is located in the EU, the U.S., or anywhere else. This obviously includes hotels and other hospitality-related businesses located in the United States!
