In addition to experiencing unprecedented declines in business and resulting revenue caused by the COVID-19 crisis, these industries are under mounting data privacy and protection regulatory pressures from regulators and customers.
Hotels, airlines, cruise lines, and gyms are often global in nature meaning they must comply with multiple international privacy laws like the GDPR, CCPA, PDPA, etc. Adding further uncertainty, many were relying on the now invalidated Privacy Shield, or alternatively, the now legally questionable Standard Contractual Clauses or Binding Corporate Rules to conduct cross-border data transfers of personally identifiable information (“PII”).
Despite suffering massive declines in revenue, these businesses are experiencing exponential demands from their customers exercising their privacy rights like information access, do-not-sell, and erasure requests.
