4.3.1. Personal data
Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). A natural person is considered identifiable if they can be identified, directly or indirectly, particularly via allocation to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more specific features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural, or social identity of this person.
4.3.2. Data subject
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the party responsible for the processing.
Processing is any process or any such sequence of processes that takes place with or without the aid of automated procedures and is related to personal data, such as collection, logging, organisation, sorting, storage, adjustment or modification, reading, requesting, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion, or erasure.
4.3.4. Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the objective of restricting its future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of this personal data being used in order to evaluate certain personal aspects related to a natural person, particularly with the aim of analysing or predicting aspects concerning work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, place of residence, or location changes of this natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in a manner in which the personal data can no longer be matched with a specific data subject without the involvement of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and technical and organisational measures are in place that guarantee that the personal data cannot be matched with an identified or identifiable natural person.
4.3.7. Controller or party responsible for the processing
The controller or party responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, authority, organisation, or other body that decides on the purpose and means of the processing of personal data, alone or together with others. If the purpose and means of this processing are set by Union law or the law of the member states, the specific criteria of their designation can be set for the controller(s) in accordance with Union law or the law of the member states.
The processor is a natural or legal person, authority, organisation, or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, organisation, or other body that personal data is disclosed to, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. Authorities that may receive personal data within the framework of a specific investigation mandate in accordance with Union law or the law of the member states, however, are not considered recipients.
4.3.10. Third parties
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, organisation, or other body apart from the data subject, controller, processor, and the people who are authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent is any declaration of will submitted by the data subject voluntarily, in an informed manner and unambiguously, in the form of a declaration or another clear confirmatory action with which the data subject indicates that it agrees to the processing of its personal data.
