Personal Data

 

What is personal data?

Personal data are any information that identify or can potentially identify a natural living person. Such data are, for example, our identity, social insurance, passport, telephone or vehicle registration number, or biometric data such as fingerprints or even DNA data extracted from a piece of hair.

What is sensitive personal data?

The law provides that data concerning racial or ethnic origin , political convictions, religious or philosophical beliefs, participation in a body, association or trade union, sex life and erotic orientation and data relevant to criminal prosecutions and convictions are sensitive data. The legislator provides that sensitive data should enjoy a higher level of protection because it is often easy for people to suffer discriminations on the basis of these data.
