EU-Hof: gegevens waaruit indirect de seksuele geaardheid van een persoon kan worden afgeleid vormen gevoelige gegevens in de zin van de AVG

The processing of personal data that may indirectly reveal sensitive information about an individual, such as information about their sexual orientation, may qualify as processing of "special categories of personal data" within the meaning of the AVG. The processing of such sensitive data is prohibited in principle. This is the EU Court's answer to questions from a Lithuanian judge.
