What is personal data
Personal data are all data and information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Example: an account or IBAN number is not personal data until the account number can be linked to a natural person by others. At that moment the account number is also personal data.
Company data are no personal data, unless you are an independent entrepreneur, run a one-man business or participate in another legal form without limited liability. In that case these data are also considered personal data.
What do we use personal data for
