actually, no, that's not a great interpretation of the current
guidelines. that might be the interpretation of your board, but it
is not a universal interpretation of the rules. there is no
prohibition on harm, it is a balancing of harm, or a minimal risk of
harm in relation to the public benefit. It is not important that the
data be connected to the individual, it is that it is private data.
published data is very hard to claim as private data.
