From the Concise Oxford English Dictionary, 9th Edition:
personalize / (also -ise)
1 make personal, esp. by marking with one's name etc.
2 personify.
personalization / n.

In the UK, the Oxford English Dictionary has the same standing a Webster's
does in USA. So, 'ize' is the preferred form. FWIW, the same holds true
for most words that end in 'ize' or 'ise'. That is, either spelling is
acceptable, but 'ize' is the preferred form.

For once, it seems that the left-pondians agree with the right-pondians.
