Need some help drafting our Open Data License here.
Hence, we decided to replace it with an exceptions clause “This Licence does not grant you any rights over (i) any personal data should any personal data be included in the dataset inadvertently or otherwise; (ii) third party rights that the Agency is not authorised to licence; and (iii) patents, trademarks and design rights.”
This is to make sure that we protect personal data or any other data which is not supposed to be released to the public. We think that thisis more reasonable as it states explicitly the cases where data cannot be used. This is also to pre-empt cases where inappropriate data is published and had to be taken down subsequently by the agency (e.g. an agency accidentally uploaded personal data).
Can you please confirm that this clause adheres to the Open Definition ?
