A data subject is a natural person in the EU whose personal data is processed by a controller or processor. The GDPR protects any information that can be used to identify the individual directly or indirectly, such as a name, a photo of the data subject, an email address, bank details, posts on social media sites, medical information, or a computer IP address.
