Data Subject is someone who can be identified from personal data. The data could be their name, address, telephone number or something else – but if it’s about a person, then they’re the data subject. They’re the ‘subject’ of the data. However, the term only relates to people who are alive. Data protection law doesn’t apply after someone has died. Often when you hear the term ‘data subjects’, this will mean your customers, employees, volunteers and service users. Anyone else whose personal data you use will be a data subject, too.
