Are Pinterest Boards URLs (created by personal and professional pinterest users) considered a PII

Hey guys, I apologize in advance if this question is not for this board, but I couldn't find a better fit.

 

In short - the site visitors are filling out our website form with personal information and also with a Pinterest Board URL which they created.

 

We want to pass the Pinterest Board URL to Google Analytics via data variables.

 

Is this considered a PII? as they are indexed and searchable on Pinterest and Google also.

 

Some examples would be:

Hi Nikola,

I think that as along as you don't transfer any other personal data along with URL it shouldn't be considered as PII - especially that the URLs themselves do not contain any data that would allow Google to identify any individual.
