The concept of ‘personal data’ under UK and European Union (EU) data protection law is important for e-social science researchers who handle ‘personal data’, particularly in cross-border projects. The lack of harmonization across different EU Member States is problematic. Uncertainties and complexities associated with the ‘personal data’ definition, particularly in the UK, have resulted in practical difficulties, such as in relation to anonymization. This article discusses those issues and identifies areas where clarification of the law is needed.
