Effective Data Protection with FCM Travel Solutions

Resenyheter 09 May 2018

FCM Travel Solutions has always taken the privacy and confidentiality of your employees’ personal data seriously. As you are aware of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into force on 25 May 2018. In the lead up to this, we are working towards compliance and taking every measure required to update our systems and processes.


Data processor

FCM Travel Solutions has a direct contractual relationship with your company processes your company’s employees’ personal data as a “processor”. We only process such personal data to make and manage travel arrangements in accordance with your instructions.


Data processing terms

The GDPR will require that such processing is carried out on specific terms that provide protection to data subjects (i.e. your company’s employees). With that in mind, we are introducing a travel management-specific data processing addendum for all our corporate customers. This document provides greater transparency and accountability in relation to how we process your company’s employees’ personal data.

Unless we haven’t agreed a GDPR-compliant data processing agreement with you, the new data processing addendum will be incorporated by reference into the terms and conditions under which we provide ongoing services to you, and by continuing to request services from us, you accept and are bound by the terms of the data processing addendum.


Updates to our standard terms and conditions

We will also make some changes to our standard terms of service. In brief, these changes include:

• references to the data processing addendum
• clarifying that there is no minimum commitment under our travel management agreement – you always have a choice to book with us
