Confidentiality - How is it protected?

DRD will not request or publish any information from institutions regarding parties identity, the names of the case, the advocates, the arbitrators or mediators, nor associate institutions’ names with their data.

In order to preserve confidentiality, only non-confidential data will be redacted, aggregated and presented by geographic region, and by case type. No case data will ever be presented by itself (alone) from any contributor organization. ONLY aggregated case data from multiple organizations will be presented by DRD.

For more information on how DRD protects the data, please reference our Data Protocol.

What is the Dispute Resolution Data Protocol?

The data protocol is a public statement about DRD's commitment to confidentiality and security of information.

The data which is sent to DRD is maintained on secured servers using the best industry standards for authentication and encryption.  In order to maintain the anonymity of individual case data in our database, we use standard statistical disclosure control methods.  These techniques were developed first for the U.S. Census Bureau to ensure that individual respondents could not be identified in the publicly released data.  These methods involve systematically obfuscating the individual data records, so that a particular case is not identifiable, but aggregate statistical results using the modified data are consistent with the original data and, therefore, produce valid statistical inferences.
