Glossary

Aggregated Data

means data that can be compiled from numeric or non-numeric data.

The data is collected and summarised for the purpose of statistical analysis or reporting. It is limited to recognising general trends due to the non-specific nature of the information.

It could be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity.

Anonymisation

means a type of information sanitisation whose intent is privacy protection. It is the process of removing personally identifiable information from data sets, so that the people whom the data describe remain anonymous.

In order to be truly anonymised under the UK GDPR and EU GDPR, the personal data must be stripped of sufficient elements that mean the individual can no longer be identified. However, if you could at any point use any reasonably available means to re-identify the individuals to which the data refers, that data will not have been effectively anonymised but will have merely been pseudonymised and subject to data protection law.

Lawful Basis

under the EU GDPR and the UK GDPR, you must have a valid lawful basis to process personal data.

Lawful Basis of processing personal data

There are six lawful bases for processing personal data available:

(a) Consent: the individual has given clear consent to the processing of their personal data for a specific purpose.

(b) Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract, or because specific steps have been taken before entering into a contract.

(c) Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for compliance with the law (not including contractual obligations).

(d) Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life.

(e) Public task: the processing is necessary for you to perform a task in the public interest or for your official functions, and the task or function has a clear basis in law.

(f) Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for an organisation’s legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless there is a good reason to protect the individual’s personal data that overrides those legitimate interests. (This cannot apply if an organisation is a public authority processing data to perform its official tasks.)

Special category data 

Special category data is personal data that needs more protection because it is sensitive.

Personal Data

this is also referred to as “personal information” and it means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Personal Data Breach           

 

means a breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to, personal data transmitted, stored, or otherwise processed.

Privacy Notice

(also sometimes called a privacy policy or fair processing notice) is a public document from an organisation that explains how that organisation processes personal data and how it applies data protection principles under Articles 12, 13 and 14 of the EU GDPR and the UK GDPR.

Processor

 

means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller. Processors act on behalf of the relevant controller and under their authority. In doing so, they serve the controller’s interests rather than their own.

  • race
  • ethnicity
  • political views
  • religion, spiritual or philosophical beliefs
  • biometric data for ID purposes
  • health data
  • sex life data
  • sexual orientation
  • genetic data

(b) Employment, social security and social protection (if authorised by law)
(c) Vital interests
(d) Not-for-profit bodies
(e) Made public by the data subject
(f) Legal claims or judicial acts
