Retrieval Providing services that process requests for finding personal data in, for example from archives or database. Retrieval is the operation of accessing data, either from memory or from a storage device.
Use „Use“ is non-specific and covers a multitude of other processing categories as listed here. Please only refer back to this term if the processing comprises all other categories except profiling, combination and Big Data Analytics. Data in use is data that is currently being updated, processed, erased, accessed or read by a system.
