What is Personal and Non Personal Information?

Personally Identifiable Information, commonly referred to as PII, is information that itself may identify a unique individual or can be linked back to an individual, directly or indirectly, by reference to an identifier such as a name, an online or device identifier, an identification number, or location data such as your IP address. In relation to your interaction with Bytesbox, personal information, for example, may include information you may purposefully provide such as your name and email address during account registration or your address and financial information if you make a purchase.
