Jargon Explained

We want everyone to engage positively and constructively with data protection rights and responsibilities. To do that, we try and present information and guidance in a relevant and accessible way. Although it is sometimes necessary to use legal terminology, we will use plain English wherever we can. Data protection is for all of us, not just for lawyers.

Adequacy decision

The Bailiwick is one of several jurisdictions that the European Commission (EC) currently recognises as offering an adequate standard of data protection. An adequacy decision from the EC is essential to the continued success of the Bailiwick’s economy as it allows EU organisations to easily transfer data to the islands of the Bailiwick.

Administrative fine

A fine ordered by the Data Protection Authority

Anonymised

Data is considered 'anonymised' if an organisation has irreversibly removed all information from a set of data that could have identified individual people. If data has been irreversibly anoymised then it is no longer classified as personal data. 

Authorised jurisdiction

  • The Bailiwick of Guernsey
  • A Member State of the European Union
  • Any country, any sector within a country, or any international organisation that the (European) Commission has determined ensures an adequate level of protection within the meaning of Article 45(2) of the GDPR and for which the determination is still in force.
  • A designated jurisdiction (by Ordinance)
