We use any information required for the actual configuration of any widgets. In some instances, this involves a user ID (via direct input or pulled from a URL or piece of code added to the widget configuration options): Flickr, Google+ Badge, Mailchimp Subscriber Popup, Goodreads, Twitter Timeline.
Note that, if you add any such information when configuring widgets, any user on your site with widget management privileges will be able to access that information.
Additionally, for activity tracking (detailed below): IP address, WordPress.com user ID, WordPress.com username, WordPress.com-connected site ID and URL, Jetpack version, user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
