GDPR Compliance Policy
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018. TravMedia takes the protection of your data extremely seriously.
What is GDPR?
GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It is the biggest change to EU data privacy for 20 years and creates a single set of rules that better protects personal information for people across the EU. All global organisations must review how they manage your personal data, such as your contact details including, but not limited, to address, phone numbers and email address, to ensure they meet GDPR requirements. You also have the right to be forgotten.
It is important to note TravMedia does not keep private details such as your date of birth, medical records, financial records, criminal records, mother’s maiden name and employment information, that under the GDPR regulation needs to be kept securely. We only keep your contact details to help promote your business interests.
