Under GDPR, data collection must be done lawfully and transparently. This typically involves obtaining explicit consent from data subjects or relying on other lawful bases for data processing, such as legitimate interests or legal obligations.
GDPR allows the collection of personal data, which includes any information that can directly or indirectly identify an individual, such as names, email addresses, IP addresses, and more. Special categories of sensitive data, such as health or biometric data, have additional requirements.
GDPR does not prevent data collection but places strict requirements on how data is collected and processed to protect the privacy and rights of data subjects.
Data collection must follow GDPR’s principles, such as lawfulness, fairness, transparency, purpose limitation, data minimization, accuracy, storage limitation, integrity, and confidentiality.
