Privacy Policy

How we process personal data
New regulations about how personal data can be collected and processed will be enforced on May 25, 2018. They are called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and they are common for all members of the EU. This gives you a better control of your own personal data. You can for example ask for a view of the data you have provided and also have corrections made or even to have data deleted. You do not need to take any action on this information, but it is important that all our guests are aware of how personal data are being processed by Akademihotellet.
