SSL: Personal Identifiable Information on Certificate?

So I am new to hosting, etc but learning as I go along. Currently I have a vps from another provider and I want to setup a free SSL certificate from StartSSL for the moment. Now with domains I know there is private registration for the whois records and I currently have that for my domain. StartSSL requests your physical address, phone number, etc. I was wondering if this data is put on the SSL certificate or if my address would be obtainable in any way from using the certificate on my website, obviously I am concerned about privacy since its a gaming website. So would it be possible for anyone to gather my address in any way if I have a StartSSL certificate installed on my website? Thanks!
