Terms used in this disclaimer

“Personal data” – GDPR requires that consideration be given to how data is being used to make decisions about specific individuals. A piece of information that does not qualify as personal data for one organization could become personal data if a different organization came into possession of it based on the impact this data could have on the individual. It all depends on the reason for which the organization is processing the data. If an organization processes data for the sole purpose of identifying someone, then the data are, by definition, personal data.

“Data processing” – in accordance to GDPR data processing covers a wide range of operations performed on personal data, including by manual or automated means. It includes the collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies to the processing of personal data wholly or partly by automated means as well as to non-automated processing, if it is part of a structured filing system.

“Pseudonymous data” – GDPR states that for data to be classed as anonymous, it must be stripped of all identifiers so that data set cannot be linked back to the data subject. If this can be done, then the researcher can use that data without concern about privacy law does not apply to anonymous data. It is however not always possible or appropriate to anonymize data. The law requires that when data cannot be anonymized, efforts should still be made to protect privacy. In many cases this may be done by pseudonymizing the identity of the data subject, e.g. achieved by replacing obvious identifiers, such as name, date of birth, or address with a code.

“Profiling” – is defined as the use of data to evaluate certain aspects related to the individual. The purpose is to predict the individual’s behavior and take decisions regarding it. In the context of email marketing, it can be the choice to send a particular targeted email campaign instead of another one. Profiling can be defined by three specific elements: It implies an automated form of processing, carried out on personal data, and the purpose of it is to evaluate certain personal aspects of a natural person to predict their behavior and take decisions regarding it.

“Processor” – The processor (natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body) must ensure that any personal data that it processes are kept confidential. The contract between the controller and the processor must require the processor to ensure that all persons authorized to process the personal data are under an appropriate obligation of confidentiality.
