How to find PII in your account

Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to determine if my sites are capturing PII and if there is anything stored.  


I've been looking around, but with very little success. 


If you have any advice or a good blog to share that you think would be helpful it would be greatly appreciated.

The most common source of PII is accidentally appending form post data in query strings, which appear as pages in GA. A second common source is event tracking on form post completions and passing the values as part of the event. So I would review my page URLs and events.
