Personal data is any information that can be traced directly or indirectly to you as a person. In a typical business relationship, this includes your name and e-mail address, but also your phone number and possibly your address and date of birth. Everything that is done with these personal data, we call ‘processing’. The legal meaning of the term ‘processing’ is broad and includes, among other things:

  • consulting
  • using, but also
  • the deletion of personal data

Many social media providers are located outside the European Union and store your personal data outside the European Union.
