Template for consent: Collecting and processing contact details of your guests
To help prevent and contain the spread of COVID-19 in Denmark, authorities now call on restaurants and cafes to offer guests to register their contact details.
Under the GDPR, such registration of contact details can take place by obtaining a freely given consent from the guest, after having been duly informed the guest about, amongst other, the personal data the restaurant or cafe will record and for what purposes, as well as how the personal data will be stored and for how long.
Template: Consent made easy
Kromann Reumert has prepared an informative template that restaurants and cafes are free to use. That way, they will be sure to be compliant with data protection laws when recording the contact details of their guests.
"We want to help restaurants and cafes follow up on their recording of the personal data of their guests. We also want to show that complying with the rules is not as difficult as many seem to believe. It would be a shame for concerns over GDPR compliance to keep restaurants from doing what they can to reduce the spread of COVID-19," says Tina Brøgger Sørensen, Kromann Reumert’s personal data and compliance specialist.
