Some new developments

Just a few things I came across, whilst updating myself on data protection. The Art. 29 Working Party has adopted a new document interpreting the notion of "personal data". The aim is to introduce a uniform interpretation of the Data Protection Directive. The document has not yet been published, so one awaits. This is certainly useful, as we now have the ECJ's decision on Lindqvist interpreting what sensitive personal data is and also the UK's position (Durant vFSA) on what constitutes personal data.
