NYC Data Sharing Law
As of January 3, 2021, NYC will require Booking.com to share data about their partners and hosts offering short term rentals for less than 30 nights. My questions are; how do I opt OUT of this data sharing? And how do I set the minimum nights to 30 nights in my calendar? (Currently the max minimum nights are 7 nights!)

How & Why Add your Listing to your Partner Community Profile
I do agree opt out should be allowed. AirBNB does similar already and no opt out which is why I refuse to use them.
Hi BrookAve. I am not I understand either of your responds.
Hi Ulrik Christiansen,
The maximum stay a guest can book through Booking.com is currently 30 days as we are geared more towards short term stays, not long term rentals. Therefore, it is not advised to set a minimum length of stay of 30 days and we do not see guests booking this length of stay through us regardless. We are currently experimenting the possibility to increase to 45 days but still in the testing phase.
Regarding the local law, it would be worth reaching out to your local partner support team to discuss this via the Extranet through the Inbox tab > Booking.com messages.
