The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) makes using a modern profile management tool for business travel absolutely crucial. As the person in charge, you always need to know where your data is, who can access it, and what happens to it.
In addition, the GDPR requires a number of technical and organizational measures that data processors such as Umbrella must implement. So that’s why in recent months we have been working hard to prepare Umbrella Faces – and thus our customers – for this new era of data protection.
These requirements include, for example, the special treatment of “sensitive personal information.” These are, for instance, meal preferences which allow a conclusion to be drawn on political, ethnic or religious affiliations – Kosher meals, Muslim meals or Hindu meals, for example.
Travelers can store such “sensitive data” themselves at any time. A travel assistant or travel agent, on the other hand, receives a detailed warning before they are allowed to save such preferences in a profile.
Do you have questions about profile management and GDPR? Don’t hesitate to contact us – we look forward to hearing from you.
