What is GDPR? GDPR is a set of regulations regarding collection and use of personal data, among other requirements. You can read the entire regulation here. However, to understand it better, there are a variety of articles summarizing the requirements that have been written by experts. Performing a Google search for "GDPR for Travel Agencies" will provide several good summaries.
Am I subject to GDPR requirements? Generally speaking, if you do not do business with EU and UK citizens, you are not subject to GDPR. However, you should seek legal advice of your own to be sure. The rules and requirements for GDPR compliance are substantial, and should not be taken lightly. Industry trade groups are publishing helpful guides and conducting webinars that we highly encourage you to attend.
Can you help me become GDPR compliant? Unfortunately, no. GDPR compliance can be complex, and may require changes by your company that go far beyond your website or booking engine. They may require new company policies to be written and new ways of working. This isn’t something that Passport Online can advise your business on.
