On the other hand, “Personal Information” can be directly associated with a specific person, without any additional information, such as a first and last name, an e-mail address, mailing address, or a telephone number. For example, “John Doe of 123 Any Street, Wheeling, West Virginia,” would constitute Personal Information.
