What are the personal data?

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. But because it concerns individuals, they must retain control of it.

A natural person can be identified:

directly (example: first and last name) ;

indirectly (e.g. by a telephone or license plate number, an identifier such as a social security number, a postal or e-mail address, but also by voice or image).

The identification of a natural person can be done :

from a single piece of data (example: name) ;

from the cross-referencing of a set of data (example: a woman living at such and such an address, born on such and such a day and a member of such and such an association).
