Personal information consists of "personally identifiable information"; that is, information that specifically identifies a person. Examples of personal information include a person's name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number or other account number, or information about that person's activities when directly linked to that person. Personal information also includes demographic information, such as date of birth, gender, geographic area, and preferences when such information is linked to other personally identifiable information. Personal information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a category or group of customers, products or services for which individual identities are not present, or from which they have been removed. Aggregate information allows us to better consider new products and services and tailor existing products and services to needs and desires of prospective customers.Personal Information We Collect
