What is Personal Data?

GDPR defines Personal Data as:

“…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 tells us everything and nothing. Our intention here was to author a detailed list of categorised examples of Personal Data but we can’t beat the excellent example authored by the Enterprivacy Consulting Group.
