What is meant by personal data?

Then what is meant by personal data? Based on the Personal Data Protection Act (UU PDP), personal data is any data about a person, either identified and/or identifiable separately or combined with other information, either directly or indirectly through electronic and/or non-electronic systems.

What are some examples of this personal data? Anything that can be used to identify us, for example: full name, home address, identity card number, biological mother's name, medical history, telephone number, and so on.

We have power over the personal data that we have, whether we want to share it with others or not.

However, sometimes we share personal data without us knowing it with other parties.
