Aha. So the ISO term is "PII principal", which is a person to whom the PII relates, and that is the same as a “data subject”.

Can you give me more details about the Master Controler?

Still, I like the term Master Controller as invented the term in this context in a paper I wrote in 2005 called building a Master Controller Access Framework).

It would be great to combine or link efforts in area's where we are doing the same thing for similar purpose.

Besides various IDM sources he researched 3 privacy frameworks, 2 from ITU-T and "Generally Accepted Privacy Principles: A Global Privacy Network". From this comparison it seems that controller, processor, recipient and data subject seem to be the most common terms.
