Sensitive data is a type of personal data that requires special protection under privacy laws because it is considered to be particularly sensitive or confidential. Sensitive data is protected by privacy laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the United States.

The scope of sensitive data depends on the applicable legal framework. Privacy laws typically impose stricter rules and obligations for processing sensitive data.
