Caribbean Destinations Must Prepare for Climate Hazards, Says CTO Chairman
Travelport said that it have achieved compliance with the Safe Harbor privacy framework, saying that it is the first GDS to do. Safe Harbor was developed by the European Commission, the Swiss government, and the U.S. Department of Commerce to harmonize the differences between U.S. and European laws on privacy and data protection. Set up specifically for organizations transferring personal data to the U.S. from Europe, participating companies are required to adhere to key principles aimed at ensuring sound privacy practices and preventing accidental information disclosure or loss. Travelport has certified its GDS personal data processing following a lengthy preparation process. Certification will cover personal data about travelers that is entered in a Travelport GDS platform by a subscriber located in the EU or Switzerland and which is typically stored in passenger name records and passenger profiles. Tad Ostrowski, general counsel for Travelport's GDS division, who led the companywide certification process, said that Travelport wanted to support all organizations using its GDS technology in their own compliance with legal requirements for privacy and data protection.
