The production of generalizations about groups and profiles of information subjects defined by group characteristics with the help of data mining can be highly problematic from a social and moral point of view. In this paper, we point out that the current privacy law and regulations start from too narrow a definition of 'personal data' to capture these problems. We introduce the notion of 'categorial privacy' as a starting point for a possible remedy for the failures of the current conceptions of privacy. Finally, we discuss some ways in which these problems certainly cannot be solved and suggest a possible way out of these problems.
