This could be for anything from information that an employer holds concerning you as an employee or information that has been collected by a business or organisation in connection with the services it provides.
Individuals are now entitled to gain access to not just the information itself, they are also permitted to request the details of how such data is stored and used. Further, businesses and organisations are only allowed to use such information for the express purposes that were outlined (and agreed to) at the time. That is the time that you gave your fully informed consent for it to be collected, stored, and utilised as outlined.
