Processing means taking any action with someone’s personal data. This begins when a data controller starts making a record of information about someone, and continues until you no longer need the information and it’s been securely destroyed. If you hold information on someone, it counts as processing even if you don’t do anything else with it. Other types of data processing include actions such as organising and restructuring the way you save the data, making changes to it eg updating someone’s address or record, and sharing it or passing it on to others.
