1.3 The company that you endeavour to enter into a contract with, is what we refer to as the “Data Controller”, the company that determines the purpose and means of the processing of “Personal Data”: any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (this is often referred to as a ‘data subject’). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
