What Is A Data Use Agreement

A Data Use Contract (ACA) is a contractual document used for the transmission of non-public or restricted usage data. For example, records of government agencies, institutions or companies, information on student records and data from existing human researchers. In addition, covered companies such as Stanford must take all reasonable steps to remedy a beneficiary`s violation of the AEA. For example, if Stanford learns that the data it has provided to a recipient is being used in a way that is not authorized by the AEC, Stanford should work with the recipient to resolve this issue. If these efforts were not successful, Stanford would be required to terminate any further disclosure of PHI to the recipient, in accordance with the AEA, and to notify the Federal Office of Health and Human Services for Civil Rights. DUAs are often used when a researcher wishes to access limited archives or data sets that may contain identifiable information about individuals for the purpose of carrying out such projects. The IRB should be contacted when the use of archived protected health data falls within the definition of “research” in the IRB. Investigations directly related to personal identifier data may be permitted to use and/or disclose PPIs (for individual access rights to the PHI) or to discontinue hipa authorization (for large sample requests for which individual authorizations are not practical and where the requirement is in accordance with the specifications of the data protection policy). Application forms should look at the safeguards provided to protect the identity of individuals and assess the security of procedures for protecting these identities. Defining authorized uses and disclosing the limited set of data; Sometimes the transmission of data from one agency to another is dealt with as part of a broader agreement between the parties, such as an agreement. B sub-price or contractual service agreement. The transmission of data in such a collaborative research project is often addressed in the study protocol or in the terms of the funding agreement. In these cases, a separate AEA is generally not required.

However, an AAU is required for a data transfer without a funding agreement (subsidy, contract, sub-price, contractual service agreement, etc.) between the supplier and the recipient. If the data is outside these problematic domains, the data can be transferred without the formal need for a data usage agreement.
