“Personal Data” means all information relating to a person that identifies such person or could reasonably be used to identify such person, including but not limited to, as first and last name, home address, billing address, or other physical address, email address, telephone number and Sensitive Data, if any.

 “Sensitive Data” means any information that: (a) requires a high degree of protection by law and where loss or unauthorized disclosure would require notification by Customer to government agencies, individuals or law enforcement, (b) any information that, if made public, could expose individuals to a risk of physical harm, fraud, or identity theft.
