Confidential data

You may want to make the data record findable but not openly accessible by making the data confidential. Consider the nature of the data as to whether the data can be uploaded to data.ncl or a metadata record is more appropriate. For highly sensitive data (including identifiable NHS patient data) a metadata record is more appropriate.

When creating a confidential data record providing a reason and noting if the data can ever be shared will help the data curation process.
