However I believe that any data that is required for 'contractual' reasons is not covered. When one sells anything there is an implicit (or explicit) contract so I assume (though I have no qualifications in this area) that customer data required for invoices and so on would not be covered. However if I were a business with customer data I would be asking my legal guy about this.
