"All PII is personal data but not all personal data is PII."

As an American, I disagree with this. All personal data is PII. Further, all data that can be used to identify me, my location, or my machines is PII.

"PII" is a bullshit term that is intended to convince people that it's OK to part if sensitive information simply because it isn't classified as "PII".
