Danish hotel group fined for failing to delete customers’ details

The Arp-Hansen Hotel Group in Denmark has been fined 1.1m Danish crowns (US$170,000, €148,000) and referred to the police by the country’s data protection authority (Datatilsynet) for storing information on clients longer than necessary.

In an audit visit, the DPA found there were customer profiles which should have been deleted several years earlier. The authority considers 500,000 entries ought to have been erased from the group’s systems.
