Data Sharing Agreement Letter

Through a data-sharing agreement, a processing manager (i.e., a party that determines what to do with the relevant personal data instead of taking instructions from another party) is able to share personal data with another person who is responsible for processing for specific purposes. The person in charge of third-party processing is not subject to the instructions of the first controller; However, the agreement contains a number of restrictions on the use of shared data, as well as a number of obligations to ensure that both parties meet their obligations under the RGPD and the Data Protection Act 2018. The draft proposal aims to help government authorities conclude safe, fast and transparent data exchange agreements. The proposal is based on the National Data Protection Controller`s best practice guide for the application of data sharing principles. The agreement was developed in consultation with stakeholders and builds on existing agreements. The proposal is “independent of the legislation”, i.e. it can be used for general purposes and is not bound by future legislation on the availability and transparency of data. A data-sharing agreement is an agreement between a party with useful data (the Discloser) and a party that searches for data for research on (the recipient) under which the public agrees to share its data with the recipient. These could be two universities that agree to share data for research cooperation, one or more private companies active in research or development, and even a government agency working with a private agency.

“One of the challenges of the territorial community is to promote data exchange and cooperation between several agencies and organizations at several levels of public, private and associative organizations. The interchangeable and successfully collaborating field of interchangeable data is based on the adoption of guiding principles, the identification of best practices and the recognition of challenges that may include political, scientific and technological issues. (National Geospatial Advisory Committee, 2011) If the partner is a foreign unit that does not accept compliance with U.S. law, agreements must pass through the USGS Office of International Programs. The model is designed to be generalized, but some aspects of the agreement may need to be adapted to specific requirements. We would be happy to have feedback on this project, as we are trying to harmonize a version in accordance with the proposed legislation – please provide your feedback via our contact form.
