Application of new GDPR rules as of 25/05/2018
Hynds Travel Ltd requires third parties processing EU travellers personal information to meet with the new standards of data processing in the EU and the new GDPR rules (25/5/18).
To comply with the new regulations, Hynds Travel Ltd have updated our technical processes of dealing with and storing clients personal data. This is to ensure that clients are protected against any breaches of data that may occur. Clients information will be stored for 15 years but each individual has the right to access their own data. Clients can request access to their own personal data stored on our back office system (TARSC). Should the client determine that they wish to remove their data after a period of time, this can be requested and subsequently actioned by a process of anonymization.
