Just a snippet from the PRISE conference I am attending right now:
dentifiable Person – means a natural person that is or can be identified, directly or indirectly, as a particular person by reference to an identification number or to one or more aspects of the person’s physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity. Identifiable Persons may include any employee, applicant, former employee, or retiree of Datalogic, its operating divisions, or subsidiaries in the EU.
Personal Data – is any information about an Identifiable Person that
* is within the scope of the EU Directive,
* is received by Datalogic in the U.S. from the EU,
* is recorded in any form and
* is about, or pertains to, a specific individual; and
* can be linked to that individual.
Personal Data does not include information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public Personal Data.
Processing – means any online, offline or manual processing and includes such activities as copying, filing, and inputting Personal Data into a database.
Sensitive Data – is data that pertains to medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, sexual orientation or any other data that is identified as “sensitive” by the Identifiable Person.
