Uniglobe Gemini GDPR Updates

By 29th May 2018Articles

Hello Uniglobe Gemini customer,

So, this exciting blog is to let you you know that we will be making some changes to our Privacy Notice, which will be effective from May 25th. These changes will reflect the increased transparency requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (known as the ‘GDPR’)

Although the GDPR follows the general EU data protection principles, it creates many new and improved rights for individuals and new obligations for those who process any kind of personal data. It also defines how ‘processing’ of personal data is considered – “Any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means. Such operations include, among others, collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.”

To put it simply – processing includes everything that is done with personal data by an organization, giving you control over who contacts you and how exactly they can reach you.

We have always strived to provide you with clear and simple information about the personal data we collect and use and how we protect your personal data in our Privacy Policy. Today we are simply announcing enhancements to the Privacy Policy which clarify and provide additional information about:

  • Your privacy rights and how to exercise them.
  • How we collect, use, share and protect your personal data.
  • The legal bases we rely on to process your personal data.

Over the next few weeks, we will be putting the finishing touches to our internal processes and procedures, which align our business with the new GDPR legislation. We have also acquired various levels of encryption and security around our IT infrastructure that will further enhance the ways in which we help and protect ourselves against digital foul play.

Thank you,
The Uniglobe Gemini Travel team.
