Frequently asked questions

Requests for Data

Will I know who requested my data?
Can I approve who uses my data?

As a data owner, you have the option to opt in to be an admin on your dataset. This means that you will be able to approve who has access to your data. If you choose to be an admin, we ask that you respond to any data requests within three weeks. If you do note respond within three weeks, the EMOTE database team will decide whether to share the data without your input. If you choose not to opt in to be an admin on your dataset, this process will be handled solely by the EMOTE database team.

Will data users be able to contact me?
