Public sector Information / Government data

Data that is collected, produced, reproduced, processed, disseminated, or controlled by the public sector bodies in many areas of their activity while accomplishing their institutional tasks.  The work of government involves collecting huge amounts of data, much of which is not confidential (economic data, demographic data, spending data, crime data, transport data, etc).

Public sector body

Public sector body’ means the State, regional or local authorities, bodies governed by public law or associations formed by one or more such authorities or one or more such bodies governed by public law.

Public domain

CC0, one of the licences of Creative Commons, is a ‘public domain dedication’ which attempts so far as possible to renounce all rights in the work and place it in the public domain. Source: ODH


Pseudonymization is a data management and de-identification procedure by which personally identifiable information fields within a data record are replaced by one or more artificial identifiers, or pseudonyms. Pseudonymization is suggested as one of the technical measures that can help with compliance with the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation and its obligations for data controllers to ensure secure processing of personal data.


 (i) Proprietary software is owned by a company which restricts the ways in which it can be used. Users normally need to pay to use the software, cannot read or modify the source code, and cannot copy the software or re-sell it as part of their own product.

The right of individuals to a private life includes a right not to have personal information about themselves made public. A right to privacy is recognised by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights, and in the EU and the Member States of the EU it is recognised by the Charter of Fundamental Rights and is regulated by special regulation.
