"PERSONAL DATA AND PROCESSES FOR HOTELS"
Today, developments in the field of communication and informatics, the level of development of any kind of "device" we use, makes it much easier to collect, save, store, transfer and even misuse personal data. Our country has enacted the Law on the Protection of Personal Data in 2016, and regulations are still being issued in accordance with the law, and the Protection of Personal Data Department occasionally issues notifications, evaluates applications and appeals and makes decisions to direct the application. It places many responsibilities on individuals and institutions.
As a touristic business, hotels stay thousands of people annually and record the personal data of their guests, as well as the personal data of thousands of employees.
The recording, processing, storage and storage of such intensive data has extremely serious responsibilities. Therefore personal data from the very beginning (from the interview with the workers and business affairs, from the acceptance of the guest information to the arrival of the guests).
We must carry out personal data processes in accordance with KVKK, relevant regulations and communiqués. The consequences of non-compliance can be severe. As well as administrative fines up to 1.000.000,00.-TL, imprisonment and indemnities will be sanctions.
Citizens of the member states of the European Union exchange personal data with the European General Data Protection Regulation is a must !!!
WHAT TO DO IN HOTELS?
-We must record, process and maintain personal data in accordance with the law.
We have to make our transfers to people extremely careful.
- We must immediately delete, destroy or anonymize any expired data.
- We have to keep all the data right.
THE MOST IMPORTANT FOR TODAY:
By the end of September 2019, "personal data inventory" must be prepared and registered in the personal data register!
Preparing personal data inventory is a preparation that needs to be done with a team of lawyers, department managers, human resources ... who want a process.
For this reason, hotel operators should start working on these days when we are approaching the last months and the last days, and establish data inventory teams, and identify the data responsible representative and liaison persons.
Although what is to be done for the time being is described in titles, there is a serious need to learn in detail all the stages and the things that will or will not be done, in order not to encounter SANCTİONS!
