Data security and privacy is a top concern for ORCID. Data are stored on servers inaccessible via an internet connection. Only Record (account) holders and their assigned delegates can modify a profile. ORCID utilizes three privacy settings for all data recorded in your ORCID profile:
: Viewable by anyone who comes to the ORCID.org website or utilizes the ORCID public API.
: Viewable by you and “trusted organizations” that you have given permission to share data with. By registering your ORCID ID with ACS, you are making ACS a trusted organization.
: Viewable by only you.
