Please note that ORCiD Inc. is a not-for-profit non-governmental organisation based in the United States of America, where US law applies. Also the data is hosed on servers based on US soil.
When ORCiD connects with systems from the VU, like VUnetID and VU research portal, addition arrangements are needed.
In order for ORCiD's to become a truly international standard for Name Identification, ORCiD Inc. is aware that trust around privacy an security is of utmost importance for all international partners.
Because of this importance, they are more than willing to comply with EU, national and institutional regulations for privacy and security, like the Privacy shield conditions, additional clauses and processor agreements.
However, because ORCiD Inc. is an NGO, it is not eligible to have an official Privacy shield certification.
As they did with Safe Harbour they are however planning to comply with all of the privacy shield conditions. They will have this audited by Trust-e again as they did with Safe Harbour. The letter Trust-e will provide will be send to all participants.
The VU negotiates with SURFmarket on the legal requirements for ORCiD. Both VU and SURFmarket hold privacy in high concern. Therefore SURFmarket will ask ORCiD Inc. to sign additional standard contractual clauses (more European countries have the same wish), because of the fact they store data in the US.
Additionally there is a ‘bewerkersovereenkomst’ (Engels: processor agreement), that SURFmarket will ask ORCID to sign as well.
Time frame for all legal requirements is estimated: end of 2016 / beginning 2017
Security aspects are approved by the Security Officer from the IT department.
Privacy aspects are approved, under conditions and time frame as stated above, by Privacy Officer from the Legal department.
You have control over the data that the University shares with ORCiD. Data is exchanged when connecting with VUnetID and with the VU research portal PURE. It is up to you whether or not you add any further information on your ORCiD record.
In case of ORCiD+VUnetID connection
the following is shared: your name, and your email@example.com.
In case of ORCiD+PURE connection
the following is shared: your name, the affiliation name "Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam", your other id's like ResearcherID, all your works.
Default visibility on shared information
All shared information on your ORCiD-record will be default set to be hidden for public. If you want to make the shared information public, go yo your ORCiD-record and switch items to public visibility.
Your name will appear in your ORCiD account. You can choose what information to keep private and what to make public on your ORCID account and can edit your name. You can add further information to other fields on your ORCiD account if you choose: what information is made public and what remains private is up to you.
You have sole control over your ORCiD account, unless you choose to grant these rights to others (e.g. your PA, or connect with systems like the VU research portal). The university will not insert or edit data on your ORCiD record without your permission. The privacy setting you apply on your own account dictates who is able to see your data.
The actual IDs assigned by ORCiD are designed to be publicly available. The ORCiD will be freely available along with your name.

Once you have claimed your ORCiD, the settings are in your control. More details are available.
You are able to login to your ORCiD account, and change any details you need to.
NARCIS is dé nationale portal voor wie informatie zoekt over wetenschappers en hun werk. Naast wetenschappers maken ook studenten, journalisten en medewerkers binnen onderwijs, overheid en het bedrijfsleven gebruik van NARCIS.
NARCIS biedt toegang tot wetenschappelijke informatie waaronder (open access) publicaties afkomstig uit de repositories van alle Nederlandse universiteiten, KNAW, NWO en diverse wetenschappelijke instellingen, datasets van een aantal data-archieven, alsmede beschrijvingen van onderzoeksprojecten, onderzoekers en onderzoeksinstituten.
Dit houdt in dat NARCIS (nog) niet gebruikt kan worden als ingang tot complete overzichten van publicaties van onderzoekers. Er zijn echter steeds meer instellingen die al hun wetenschappelijke publicaties via NARCIS toegankelijk maken. Op deze wijze kunnen de publicatielijsten van de wetenschappers zo compleet mogelijk worden gemaakt.
In 2004 is de ontwikkeling van NARCIS gestart als een samenwerkingsproject van KNAW Onderzoek Informatie, NWO, VSNU en METIS in het kader van de dienstenontwikkeling binnen het DARE-programma van SURFfoundation. Dit project heeft de portal NARCIS verwezenlijkt, waarin in januari 2007 de dienst DAREnet is geïncorporeerd. Sinds 2011 is NARCIS een dienst van DANS.
National Academic Research and Collaborations Information System
NARCIS is the main national portal for those looking for information about researchers and their work. Besides researchers, NARCIS is also used by students, journalists and people working in educational and government institutions as well as the business sector.
NARCIS provides access to scientific information, including (open access) publications from the repositories of all the Dutch universities, KNAW, NWO and a number of research institutes, datasets from some data archives as well as descriptions of research projects, researchers and research institutes.
This means that NARCIS cannot be used as an entry point to access complete overviews of publications of researchers (yet). However, there are more institutions that make all their scientific publications accessible via NARCIS. By doing so, it will become possible to create much more complete publication lists of researchers.
In 2004, the development of NARCIS started as a cooperation project of KNAW Research Information, NWO, VSNU and METIS, as part of the development of services within the DARE programme of SURFfoundation. This project resulted in the NARCIS portal, in which the DAREnet service was incorporated in January 2007. NARCIS has been part of DANS since 2011.
