        Subject: a name for a kind of data?

A question, as follows, from an MA student at King's:

> I was wondering if you would know the exact name of data that is
> stored of people that is not immediately accessible to them but
> stands as a record of their online activities. An example would be
> the 1200 pages of personal biodata that Facebook user, Max Schrems
> was sent when he requested for all his personal information, before
> it was consciously retrieved by Facebook/Max Schrems but just exists
> as useless/potentially useful information 'floating' in the
> internet.

Any ideas? Please reply to wei_jie_mark.tan at kcl.ac.uk as well as to
