What is personal information?
“Personal information” means recorded information about you as an individual. It may include your name, address, sex, age, education, and medical or employment history. It can also include identifying numbers such as a Social Insurance Number, and your personal views or opinions. Information that may seem personal, such as name and contact information, may not be your personal information if that information relates to your business activities, that is, you are acting in a professional capacity in the context of the information.
