THE GDPR creates a model of proactive responsability that gives the data holder power over its use by third parties
As a result of the entry into force of the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), on May 25 Ramon Llull University’s School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi (HTSI), organized a professional seminar entitled “RGPD y turismo: adaptación al nuevo horizonte legal” (The GDPR and tourism: adapting to a new legal horizon).
