Dear M. —
Data protection laws have changed in the European Union with the new General Data Protection Regulation known as GDPR:
Hotels owners and directors have heavy duties and liabilities.
You collect personal data whenever your guests search for rooms or beds availability, make a reservation and proceed to payment, buy additional sales during their stay and even after their check out.
You are a Data Controller according to GDPR, therefore data supervisory authorities are empowered to control that you take necessary actions to comply with the regulation.
In case of guests personal data breach, the GDPR stringent new rules can result in huge fines (up to 4% of annual worldwide turnover or 20 million euros), and even criminal charges for the Director of the property.
