Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as such term is used by IAFCI, is information that can be used to identify or contact a person uniquely or can be traced back to a specific individual.

PII includes (but is not limited to) the following information:

  • Mother’s maiden name
  • Driver’s license number (or other government issued identification card)
  • Financial Institution account information
  • Payment Card information
  • Relatives’ names
  • Postal address
  • E-mail address
  • Home or cellular telephone number
  • Personal characteristics and biometric information
  • Social Security Number (SSN)
  • Date or place of birth
  • Other information that would make the individual’s personal identity easily traceable

What is not PII from an IAFCI standpoint:

PII does not include publicly available information from government records.  Additionally, since personal identity is distinct from an individual’s professional identity, the IAFCI does not consider the following information as PII. 

  • An individual’s name
  • An individual’s title
  • Work Telephone number
  • Official work location/address
  • Work email address


IAFCI prohibits the unauthorized use and disclosure of any personally identifiable information (PII), financial information or other sensitive information, including where disclosure violates applicable law or may harm the party to which it applies if disclosed outside the proper legal channels or process. If you choose to post such information, you (on behalf of yourself and any entity you may represent) accept all risk of such use or disclosure and agree to indemnify and hold IAFCI harmless against any and all liability that may result from such actions. The web forums and industry groups are made available by the IAFCI and are intended solely for IAFCI members and Mobilize Industry Group Mailing Lists. This information may only be distributed to IAFCI members and Mobilize Industry Group Mailing List and may not be forwarded to personal email accounts or third parties outside the industry group. Further disclosure or publication is not authorized in any manner; however, dissemination is allowed within your company or agency for educational purposes or if permitted by applicable law. Please take all precautions to ensure this information is stored and/or destroyed in a manner that precludes unauthorized access, use, and disclosure.
