2. What does personal data mean?
According to German law (Section 4 Paragraph 1 of the Federal Data Protection Act), personal data means “any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual (the data subject).” This includes all information that reveals something about a person. Information that cannot (or can only with a disproportionate amount of effort) be linked to an individual is not classified as personal data.
Legislators define the processing of personal data as activities such as the collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, readout, retrieval, use, disclosure (by transmission, dissemination or some other form of provision), collation or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction of personal data.
