Publicly available data
There are datasets that are also accessible as public use files (PUF) or campus files. PUFs contain completely anonymized or aggregated data. Their use is therefore not limited to a specific user group or location of use. Campus Files are available for students’ thesis and teaching. Public Use Files and Campus Files can be requested by emailing to email@example.com.
The FDZ Ruhr expects responsible use of the data provided. Any attempts to identify individuals (individuals, companies or comparable groups) are to be refrained from. If an accidental re-anonymization occurs, this must be reported to the data provider immediately. Data that contain personal references or for which there is a possibility of re-anonymization are generally only made available for the purposes of scientific research. For this purpose, the FDZ Ruhr concludes user agreements with the legal representatives of research institutions. When using these data, it must be ensured that data protection regulations according to Art. 29 DS-GVO, Art. 5 DS-GVO, Art. 89 DS-GVO and §78 SGBX as well as the appendices to Art. 32 para. l DS-GVO and §78 SGBX are adhered to. This data will not be transferred to countries that are not classified by the European Union as safe in terms of data protection. For data protection reasons, we can only provide our data to applicants and users in EU countries and countries with a comparable data protection agreement. If you are a data user from another country, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
