Please note that there’s a special category of personal data: sensitive personal data. For example, this includes medical information, data about a person’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or genetic and biometric data (e.g. fingerprint). Financial data isn’t considered sensitive data. If a company processes sensitive data, additional security and technical security measures must be taken.
