    The distinction between sensitive and non-sensitive PII is helpful. Is it a generalization (e.g., all phone numbers are non-sensitive because they're found in phone books), or is it tailored to each person (e.g., the numbers included in phone books are non-sensitive, but unlisted numbers are sensitive)?
