potentially identifiable personal information

Definition(s):

  A new category of information proposed by Robert Gellman for information that has been de-identified but can be potentially re-identified. Potentially identifiable personal information is any personal information without overt identifiers. Under Gellman’s proposal, parties that wish to exchange attempts PI2 could voluntarily subscribe to a regime that would provide for both criminal and civil penalties if the recipient of the data attempted to re-identify the data subjects.
