GDPR in Europe and what you need to know about it

So how can the hospitality industry embrace GDPR and its compliance?

With GDPR in effect, you must explain to your guest as to what data you are capturing (the nature of the data),
explain why you are capturing that data (the purpose of the data) and who’ll be having access to that data, (the identity of the Data Controller)
and who else will have access to this data. Thus, your guest will completely understand what data you need and your intentions with the data. Furthermore,
you’ll be able to use the guest information explicitly for the reason you mention; leaving no chances of data misuse.

That is, hotels and F&B businesses in EU as well as outside EU fall under GDPR and have to be completely compliant with the rules.

This means that hotels and restaurants have to be GDPR compliant
through the software they use, thus safeguarding their guests’ data from potential exploits.

What’s ShiRam Technosys doing to be GDPR compliant?

Hotel technology providers have to adhere with the same rules and obligations that a hotel has to, for GDPR. Vendors who acquire personal data from their hotel clients must share a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) with the hotelier to confirm that the vendor is compliant with the rules of the GDPR.

Being a global hospitality solutions provider, we have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to meet the GDPR requirements.

In addition, we’ll also be deleting all the data associated with your contract
upon its termination, along with the back-ups;
with no delegation to any data processor without your written consent.

eZee’s hotel solutions are already PCI DSS compliant.
Which means that our products are already keeping your
guests’ data secure from any potential theft or misuse,
making it easier for us to become GDPR ready.
