Part 9: Glossary
Non-Personal Information: Information that is not traceable back to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual. For example, information such as gender, age, city and state when not linked with other Personally Identifiable Information is Non-Personal Information.
Personally Identifiable Information (PII): (also called Personal Information): Information that can be traced back to an individual (contrast with Non-Personal Information and Aggregate Information). Examples of Personally Identifiable Information include your name, home address, telephone number, email address, and Social Security number.
If other pieces of information are linked to Personally Identifiable Information, they also become Personally Identifiable Information. For example, if you use a nickname to chat online and give out your real name while chatting, your nickname becomes Personally Identifiable Information when linked with other Personally Identifiable Information.
