Some general information on personal data, cookies and collection of personal information (information as displayed on Webtrends website

“What data is considered personal data?

The precise definition of personal data varies across the EU due to the slightly different ways in which the Data Protection Directives are implemented in law. Fundamentally, personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual (known as a “data subject”). An identifiable individual is a person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identification number or one or more factors specific to their physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.


Are IP addresses personal data?

An IP address can be personal data depending on the way in which it is used; if an IP address is processed with the aim of identifying an individual, the IP address may be deemed personal data. The approach taken to IP addresses as personal data will differ slightly between EU Member States.


Most importantly, some DPAs (Data Protection Agency), especially in Germany, have taken the position that IP addresses are personal data...


...Are cookies personal data?

Cookies are generally regarded as personal data because they are used to track the activities of a computer and differentiate between users.


In the context of compliance with data protection laws it is useful to distinguish between ‘first party’ cookies and ‘third party’ cookies. First party cookies are cookies placed by the operator of the website visited by the user. These cookies enable the website’s operator to advertise its own products or tailor its website to the user based on the information gathered by its own cookies. The website operator will be the controller of the personal data gathered by its own, first party, cookies...


...Third party cookies are cookies sent by an entity other than that which operates the website. Third parties – typically advertising networks – may enter into agreements with a number of partner websites to enable them to serve cookies from those websites and collect information about visitors for the purposes of serving tailored advertising on a number of websites. Where the third party determines the means and purposes of the processing of personal data it gathers from its third party cookies, it will be a controller and must comply with the Data Protection Directive as it is implemented in the EU Member State in which it operates. Based on the difference in first party cookies and third party cookies, it is important to confirm that a vendor is using a first party cookie to collect data from your websites.” (source - Webtrends)
