One of the big questions is how long you may store personal data from a customer who made a request but did not complete a booking.

Another important topic of the GDPR is the privacy declaration and to make it accessible for the client in the moment he is required to release his personal data.

A central topic of the GDPR is the consent of the client to use his personal data. YachtSys provides by default a draft of consent text in all online widgets. Of course YachtSys enables you to set up also your own consent text which e.g. your lawyer recommends you to use.

(Welche auch von Charterfirmen begangen werden)

Das Seminar mit dem Titel „The 7 Biggest Mistakes in Online Marketing - also done by Charter Companies“, wurde von mir auf der Internationalen CharterExpo im November 2014 in Berlin vorgetragen.
