Data Use Policy ("Data Bill of Rights")

Adopted 2.16.2006

Main Theme:

"The more data you have to look at, the more data you have to look at."

Gathering Data

  1. We will only gather data which we don’t already have.
  2. We will only gather data which we are legally allowed to obtain.
  3. We will only gather data for which we have an explicit, planned use.
  4. We will only gather data from reliable sources.
  5. We will only gather data when we have a confirmation process created to verify its accuracy.
  6. We will only gather data when we have built a mechanism to verify its timeliness (when it was obtained, when we re-verify its accuracy).

Updating Data

  1. We will display all data which we currently have.
  2. We will verify data past its expiration date.
  3. We will update data only from those sources who are permitted to make changes.

Using Data

  1. We will contact the fewest number of people we can each time we use data.
  2. We will update our records as the result of each contact.
