What data types should I use SSL to pass?

What's acceptable and best practice when it comes to passing data in on websites securely and non-securely? I've always presumed finanical information should be passed securely, whilst names and address were OK non-securely? Am I right?

I run an health condition community where people have to enter their names, addresses, DOBs etc. One member asked to be removed as we weren't using SSL for their profile information. I'm (reasonably) happy that we aren't, but am I wrong? And are there any published guidelines?
