I don't believe the latter case is actually permissible in Europe on a
strict reading of EU data protection law at least. It's a database of
personal data including sensitive data. If you have it searchable by
person (eg so you can find people by name etc as opposed to just being
'500 people on a street') and you are in the EU you should probably also
be registered as a data controller.
