$ 2 Definitions

This privacy policy is based on terminology which has been used by the European regulators when issuing the EU General Data Protection Regulation (referred to as “GDPR”). This privacy policy is intended to be easy to read and understand. To this effect, the most important terms will be defined hereafter:

 

  1. Personal data is any information referring to a natural person which has been or is to be identified (hereafter referred to as “person concerned”). A person to be identified is a natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, especially by assigning an identifier such as a name, an identification code, location data, an online code, or one or more specific characteristics which are an expression of that natural person’s physical, physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural or social identity.
  2. Person concerned is every natural person identified or to be identified whose personal data is distributed by the person responsible for processing this data.
  3. Processing refers to any process carried out with or without the use of automated procedures and any such chain of procedures connected to personal data such as collecting, recording, organizing, sorting, retaining, modifying or changing, retrieving, querying, using, disclosing by transfer, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparing or linking, restricting, deleting or destroying such data.
  4. Profiling is any kind of automated processing of personal data which involves the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects pertaining to a natural person; in particular to the effect of analysing or forecasting aspects regarding performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, domicile or change of location.
  5. Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that this personal data cannot be assigned to a specific person concerned without collecting additional information, insofar as this additional information is retained separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that this personal data cannot be allocated to a natural person identified or to be identified.
  6. Responsible person or a person responsible for processing is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or any other body that makes a decision alone or jointly with others about the purpose and means of processing personal data. If the purpose and means of processing have been stipulated by Union law or the legislation of member states, the responsible person and/or certain criteria selected by him/her according to Union law or the legislation of member states can be determined.
  7. Processor is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or any other body that processes personal data on behalf of the responsible person.
  8. Recipient is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or any other body who personal data is submitted to, regardless of whether this is a third party or not. However, authorities that may obtain personal data while conducting a specific investigation according to Union law or the legislation of a member state are not considered to be recipients.
  9. Third party refers to a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or any other body except the person concerned, the responsible person, the processor or any person who is authorized by direct responsibility of the person responsible or the processor to process personal data.
  10. Consent is any voluntary expression of intention of the person concerned given in a particular situation in an informed and unambiguous way in the form of a declaration or any other clear, confirmatory act where the person concerned implies that he/she agrees to the processing of his/her personal data.
