Privacy Settings

Researcher privacy is a fundamental principle of ORCID; you select the pre-defined privacy settings of your own ORCID record data.

ORCID provides three settings:

  • Public
    Information marked as Public or Everyone can be viewed by anyone using the website or used by anyone using the ORCID public API. Data marked as public will also be included in the public data file posted annually by ORCID.
    ◦ Accessible by: Anyone
  • Trusted Parties
    Information marked as Limited or Trusted Parties can be seen by the trusted party that you have authorized to connect to your ORCID Record. These connections require explicit action on your part. You will be asked if you would like to define a specific connection, and once you have confirmed, the trusted party will be able to see information that you have marked as limited-access.
    ◦ Accessible by: Record owner
    ◦ Accessible by: account delegates specified by Record owner
    ◦ Accessible by: trusted organizations
  • Private
    Information marked as Private or Only Me, can only be seen by you. It is also used by ORCID algorithms to help distinguish your identity from another persons with a similar name, be in a similar field, or may be confused with you for other reasons. This information is not shared with others.
    ◦ Accessible by: Record owner
    ◦ Accessible by: account delegates specified by Record owner

Note: You can change your privacy settings at any time.
