▪ Treatment restriction – The restriction of treatment consists of the identification of personal data stored with the aim of limiting treatment thereof in the future.
▪ Pseudonymisation –Pseudonymisation is the treatment of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without using supplementary information, provided that such supplementary information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
▪ Controller – the Controller is the person, natural or legal, public or private, public authority, agency or other body that, individually or jointly, determines the purposes and means of treatment of personal data; where the purposes and means of such treatment are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria applicable to their nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
