Personal data definition

I did have a question about GDPR and was wondering if there is merit in it.
By definition, you have clarified personal data as information related to an identifiable or identified natural person. My question is whether the same GDPR rules would apply to derived or interpreted personal data for a data subject? I don't know if this is a correct example, but let us say the sharing of an EMI value of a data subject.

Personal data is defined by the GDPR as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

Assuming that by EMI you refer to “equated monthly installment” the EMI is not personal data as it is not unique to a specific person and the same EMI would be applicable to multiple borrowers.
