We have developed a robust framework of Data Access Controls for the Gateway. You can use these to manage the level of access that different users have to your data. If you feel it is necessary, you can limit public access to your dataset by blurring resolution to 1km, 2km or 10km squares and by concealing recorder and determiner names and other details about the record. You can then use the Access Controls to supply full details of some or all records in the dataset to selected organisations or individual users. There is a separate control enabling you to grant or withhold access to records which you have flagged as sensitive.
