Re: GDPR - What is considered personal data?

@TimG

 

I would say where you process the data really matters, but not for applicability of the legislation.

 

Processing GDPR Personal Data with no third country adequacy, no BCRs, model contracts etc - and the controller and processor are going down.

 

A quibble, but one I think that reinforces your point.

Re: GDPR - What is considered personal data?

This is my understanding : the First name and Last name combine to create a single entity = Name - because name is not in itself a unique identifier it requires another primary element to constitute PII.  there are instances where the actual name is unusual in its construct ( spelling, pronunciation etc.) but a secondary element is still required to make it identifiable  - Happy for anyone to comment and disagree

Don't forget your own employees.  They certainly have a right to privacy under GDPR.
