The open-access datasets provided by the Biomedical Data Journal might contain anonymised data, i.e. datasets pertaining to previously identifiable individuals. In accordance with recommendations by the Article 29 Data Protection Working Party (Dir 95/46/EC), license-holders are prohibited from re-identifying any individual. License-holders are also prohibited from using the data to take any measure or decision with regard to the individuals concerned. When the license-holder detects that the individuals involved can be or have been re-identified, the license-holder is obliged to send a notification thereof to the licensor of the dataset.
A dataset shall be considered compromised as soon as the data has become re-identifiable, i.e. as soon as the data subjects to which the data relate have become re-identifiable. Upon notification that the dataset might be compromised, the licensor shall be granted the right to recall the ‘compromised’ dataset. The licensor shall be given the right to suspend or terminate the accessibility of the data, for instance by removing the file from the OpenScienceLink platform and the BMDJ website.
