WHAT MEANS …
Processing of personal data
By 'processing' we mean any operation or set of operations performed on personal data (whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, storage, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, as well as the blocking, erasure or destruction of personal data).
By 'personal data' we mean all information about an identified or identifiable natural person.
A processor is the natural or legal person, de facto association or public administration who processes personal data on behalf of the controller, with the exception of persons who are authorised to process the data under the direct authority of the controller.
A controller (person in charge of processing) is any natural or legal person, de facto association or public administration who alone or jointly with others determines the objectives and legal and technical means for the processing of personal data.
