I'm writing a technical description about the usage of personal detail data in a system. Some reports are generated from that data, but those reports do not have anyone's personal details in them.

For example, you could have a webshop with orders, where for each order one would store the customer's name, product code, and date of order. A report could be a monthly summary of what products were ordered and how many of each were ordered.

So I'm trying to say something like "These reports do not handle the personal data in any way as they only consist of _____ data". (Feel free to rewrite the entire sentence if that helps.)

It's certainly not anonymized nor pseudonymized, as there would be no place for any kind of user name in that report. Words I'm thinking of would be "summarized" or "condensed". Would those work, or would there be some even more appropriate word?

  • I'd just say "non-personal data", eg "These reports do not contain any personal data about the users." Sep 14, 2017 at 10:14
  • in this particular case, I would say 'stock level data'

  • Stopping the sentence at "... in any way" would achieve your purpose.

  • A report could be a monthly summary... - that sounds like the answer to your question. The data is summarized by month.

  • As Davo suggested, summaries as for instance: These reports consist of summaries only, with no personal data/details/information. Sep 15, 2017 at 17:31
