Abstract

European Data Protection Authorities try to broaden the definition of personal data. There is a serious risk that this will lead to a dilution of data protection or privacy law, in the sense that the law will apply to everything and nothing, making it a law without meaning.

Keywords: privacy law; data protection; general data protection regulation; concept of personal data
