I have a fairly unique name and never came across, online or otherwise, anyone with the same name and spelling.
Following this, I make the assumption that this qualifies as personal data under GDPR since my name and first name uniquely identify me as far as it can be tested.
When I request my personal data from google, I got about 2gb. Mostly my emails and, in the end, nothing really valuable.
I'm using iOS for all mobile activity and I don't have chrome, so it probably limited data capture.
The surprise was that they had a list of flights I made and I'm not sure how this was captured.
But my question is about the index: I can be found under the index and my name, the "personal data", has to be part of their database index.
So, under GDPR, I should get a copy of the index entries when my name appears, shouldn't I?
Also, if this constitute "personal data", shouldn't I have the ability to request either:
- deletion, under the right to be forgotten
- or, stop processing, where they can keep data but not use it?
It looks like Google is considering everything but the index under GDPR.
Is there an interpretation of the law that allows this?
