GDPR: Processing sensitive personal data

GDPR (to be put into effect by the EU as 25.05.2018) stipulates:

Processing of special categories of personal data

  1. Processing of personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation shall be prohibited.

In order to meet this requirements of GDPR a new warning message in the traveller profile is displayed in the following situation:

  1. Travellers Citizenship is a country within the European Community
  2. When a traveller (“profile owner”) selects one of the following meal requests: Hindu, Kosher or Moslem Meal, no warning appears. However if an administrator selects one of the mentioned meal requests, the following warning is displayed:

When uploading data using the csv-file upload function in the Profile Center, a new checkbox is displayed.

If the checkbox is not activated profiles with above values will not be imported.

When Faces receives data from an external system (OBT such as Cytric) we assume that the compliance to GDPR is implemented in the external system.
