What is personal information data?
According to GDPR, “personal information data” means any information regarding an identified or identifiable private individual (“Data Subject”). An identifiable private individual is a person that can be identified, directly or indirectly, especially in reference to an element of identification, like name, identification number, localization data, online identifier or by one or more specific elements, like physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural or social status, unique to their individual identity.
There is no personal information data list, and GDPR does not impose on states to generate such a list, for the very simple reason that one piece of data can become personal information in certain contexts, while in others it can simply be a piece of information devoid of value with no personal information characteristic.
Here’s some examples of personal information data:
- An individual’s domicile or living space;
- Email address (including addresses like firstname.lastname@example.org)
- ID or Passport serial number;
- Data regarding location (e.g., localization function on a mobile phone)*;
- IP address;
- Cookie ID;
- A person’s silhouette from a CCTV recording;
- A car’s license plate
As you can see, personal information data definition contains a few more important elements:
Personal data means information about private individuals, not public ones. This distinction is important because, for example, the Commerce Registrar registration number, or the Tax Code, or any other identification elements for larger companies are not data with personal information characteristics. Additionally, when an email address or a phone number is clearly associated with a public individual (e.g. emails like office@ or a company’s public call center phone number), these are obviously not personal information data.
Whether the personal information processing is made manually or through an automated system is irrelevant, as long as it is part of a structured system of data accounting.
The only important part is that we discuss the processing of such a type of data.
For a better understanding of what personal information data is, please read Op. nr.4 from 2007 regarding the concept of personal information data, released by the Working Group Art. 29.
To simplify the above definition, we can conclude that personal information data is data that refers to a live person that can be identified using said data or, starting with said data and
using additional information which already is or can enter into the data operator’s possession.
Information that we collect
ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO collects personal information in two important ways:
Information provided directly by you, through ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO forms (e.g. as a result of registering as a member of the ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO community, soliciting a ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO service, placing an order on the website or subscribing to the ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO newsletters).
Information we obtain when you use our services (for example, we process your newsletter interaction history to better understand and limit our newsletter to topics that you’re interested in, you order history, etc.)
Information provided by you, directly
ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO uses forms through which you can create an account, place orders, leave reviews or subscribe to informative newsletters provided by ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO. These forms include fields such as your name, email address, phone number, password, details regarding your product delivery address, invoicing information, etc.
We use this data to give you access to our website and delivery you products and services that you’ve chosen to receive (ordered products, newsletters, etc.) The legal baseline for this processing is the entering and execution of a contract that you are part of (any time that you take the actions listed above, or you agree with the terms and conditions of provision for those services) or your consent for commercial communication sent to you, with no mention of products or services similar to those you already acquired from us, where we are within our rights to send commercial communication (but we will always give you the option to unsubscribe from such communication).
We might also require additional tax information, if we are compelled by law to submit tax declarations regarding our products and services ordered by you. In this case, we will refer to your address (necessary to be added to the tax invoice), but also other tax data that is required by law to be collected and processed in regards to the transaction in question. In this case, the legal onus for processing will be represented by the obligation of obeying the legislative law.
We do not use your personal information to send you marketing news unless you explicitly opt into such a means of communication. Even in such cases, we assure you that you have an easy option of unsubscribing (removal of consent) at any time, either within the communication itself, or contacting us by email or phone.
ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO also offers the possibility of sending us messages. Information that you send through such means of contact is processed based on our genuine interest to respond to your requests and/or keep an archive of your complaints, your consultation requests and similar. This data is stored for 5 years.
Using the ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO website
ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO automatically collects specific information which is stored in their traffic reports. Such information may contain the IP of the device you are using to browse our website, the region or local area from where you access our website from, as well as the type of browser, operating system or the devices you are using to access the website. Additionally, it collects a history of the web pages you access.

Additionally, we collected demographic statistics which help us identify ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO user’s preferences.
Cookies and other similar technologies
In the internet’s early days, websites did not have a memory. As such, the first versions of websites did not have a log in feature. For online shops, using helpful services like the shopping cart was not possible. They also did not have any helpful mechanisms which could have helped the user and the website identify each other on repeat visits.
Cookies were invented to remedy exactly this type of problem. They are small text files, stored on the user’s terminal, that play the role of a memory bank for the website. Any time a person visits a specific website, the cookie that’s placed on the user’s terminal can write and read all kinds of information the visitor already sent to the website, directly or indirectly. These allowed for the developing of other technologies that serve a similar purpose. We tried explaining such a technology below.
Cookies are small text files stored on the computer or mobile device when accessing a website. “Direct” cookies are stored by the domains that you visit at that time (e.g. ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO). “Third party” cookies are stored by any other domains other than the website you visit at the time (e.g. any other domain than ARONIA-CHARLOTTENBURG.RO).
The mobile advertising code is a unique identifier (ID) decided by your mobile device’s operating system. This ID helps the apps installed on the device, which may contain ads, to recognize you. The majority of devices give apps access to the mobile advertising ID by default. Even so, you can modify the device’s settings and restrict the device’s ability to share this code with various apps.
Please see the “Help” section for operating systems to find out more about the mobile advertising ID management. On Android, Ad means the Android advertising ID, on iOS devices it means advertising agent ID (IDFA).
