3. WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Personal information is any information (i.e. name and phone number), or an opinion, that can help to identify an individual. This individual can either be identified (we know who they are), or reasonably identifiable (we can work out who they are from the information that we have). It doesn’t matter whether or not the information or opinion is actually true or whether or not it is in writing.

At other times, we may collect personal information about you from another organisation.
