What is personal data?Last Updated: October 15, 2019
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an EU-wide regulation that controls how companies and other organizations handle personal data. This GDPR has serious implications for non-compliant website owners serving individuals in the European Union (EU).
Article 4(1) of the GDPR defines “personal data” as the following:
‘personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural 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 to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person;
This means that personal data now includes online identifiers such as IP addresses.
