Researcher privacy is very important to ORCID, and we believe that following research community-sanctioned privacy practices is essential to the success of ORCID. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about your privacy and the ability to control how your information is used.
A core ORCID principle is that you control the visibility settings of your own ORCID record data through various opt-in and opt-out features. To that end, ORCID allows you the right to control how your information is published on and shared via the ORCID Registry. You also control who has access to read or write to your ORCID record, and you can change these permissions at any time.
