Hilton has updated its Global Privacy Statement effective November 2, 2018, although the changes were posted to its website this week.
This update clarifies the organizational structure (data controllers) and (what is actually interesting) what information may be shared with providers and local authorities when WiFi service is used.
Here are the changes:
At least now I know the Hilton’s former and current structure.
Well. I would like to know if hotel is required to share guest WiFi usage or name with the local government. I perhaps could then choose to use VPN in such locations or just end up tethering in the cell phone network instead.
If you live in any of the European Union on European Economic Area countries, Hilton needs to provide this information free of charge. Just fill out the form on the linked website.
