GDPR query #1 of 2:
As I'm sure everybody else is too, I'm getting a lot of emails asking me to respond and consent to future communication. And GDPR is given as the reason.
I'm just curious really: does my business email or my business address really count as personal data? Can these be used to identify me as a natural person?
Or is it because the people wanting to communicate with me have no way of differentiating between business emails / addresses and personal ones? (And that is presuming that personal emails / addresses do count as personal data: anybody like to confirm?).
Or is it because these people feel they need to be seen to be doing something and they're belt'n'bracing?
Like I said, I'm more curious than anything else but it's just that this particular aspect of responding to GDPR all seems a bit OTT to me.
