Users are represented separately from customers to differentiate the group that uses a service, software, etc but does not pay for it. For example Facebook users, LinkedIn standard account users Duolingo users, etc. We as users don't pay to these companies so we are ideally not customers.

I am a data enthusiast (and now GDPR enthusiast) and I like to envisage, conceptualize and design solutions for real problems. All posts related to GDPR are only to present my understanding and to start a good discussion with the audience. As every business is different please consult legal experts to understand obligations specific to your company.
