What is personal data?
“Personal Data” is any information about a living individual which allows them to be identified from that data (for example a name, photographs, videos, email address or address.)Identification can be directly using the data itself by combining it with other information which helps to identify a living individual (e.g. a list of staff may contain personnel ID numbers rather than names but if you use a separate list of the ID numbers which give the corresponding names to identify staff in the first list then the first list will also be treated as personal data) The processing of personal data is governed by legislation relating to personal data which applies in the United Kingdom including the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) and other legislation relating to personal data and rights such as the Human Rights Act.
