The contribution of the paper is three-fold. First, it offers an integrated typology of identification outside of the legal context. The typology builds on three socio-technical accounts of identification: four identifiability types by Leenes, seven types of identity knowledge by Marx, and anonymity as unreachability by Nissenbaum. Second, it identifies personalisation as a new identification type, i.e. a relatively unique characterization, where one is individualized by being mapped in relation to multiple dimensions within a multidimensional space. The argument builds on the literatures on calculated publics, profiling in recommender systems, agile methods of software development, price and content personalization. Third, it clarifies the meaning of identification under the GDPR. I propose a contextual interpretation of Breyer, which negates Breyer’s restrictive potential and brings all identification types within the GDPR. The paper discusses implications of this reading of identification for data protection law and research.
