Personal data consists in the particulars of the personal or material circumstances of a specific or specifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number.
Your personal data can be anonymized. This involves changing the data so that it is either not possible to attribute it to a specific person or that the attempt would involve disproportionately great effort. In the case of pseudonymous data the name or other piece of personal information is deleted altogether and substituted.
