The Data Privacy Vocabulary [[DPV]] enables expressing machine-readable metadata about the use and processing of personal data based on legislative requirements such as the General Data Protection Regulation [[GDPR]]. This document describes the DPV specification along with its data model.

The canonical URL for DPV is https://w3id.org/dpv# which contains (this) specification. The namespace for DPV terms is https://w3id.org/dpv#, the suggested prefix for is dpv, and this document along with its various serializations are available on GitHub.

The 'Base' or 'Core' concepts in DPV represent the most relevant concepts for representing information regarding the what, how, where, who, why of personal data and its processing. Each of these concepts is further elaborated as a taxonomy of concepts in a hierarchical fashion. The DPV provides the following as 'top-level' concepts and relations to associate them with other concepts:

[=Processing=] [=hasProcessing=] Category or type of processing of personal data
[=DataController=] [=hasDataController=] Data Controller responsible for processing
[=DataSubject=] [=hasDataSubject=] Data Subject or Individual whose data is being processing
[=Recipient=] [=hasRecipient=] Recipient of personal data

Anonymised Data

IRI `https://w3id.org/dpv#AnonymisedData`
Term: AnonymisedData
Definition: Personal Data that has been (fully and completely) anonymised so that it is no longer considered Personal Data
SubType of: dpv:NonPersonalData
Note: It is advised to carefully consider indicating data is fully or completely anonymised by determining whether the data by itself or in combination with other data can identify a person. Failing this condition, the data should be denoted as PseudoAnonymisedData. To indicate data is anonymised only for a specified entity (e.g. within an organisation), the concept AnonymisedDataWithinScope (as subclass of PseudoAnonymisedData) should be used instead of AnonymisedData.

Term: SensitivePersonalData
Definition: Personal data that is considered 'sensitive' in terms of privacy and/or impact, and therefore requires additional considerations and/or protection
SubType of: dpv:PersonalData
Note: Sensitivity' is a matter of context, and may be defined within legal frameworks. For GDPR, Special categories of personal data are considered a subset of sensitive data. To illustrate the difference between the two, consider the situation where Location data is collected, and which is considered 'sensitive' but not 'special'. As a probable rule, sensitive data require additional considerations whereas special category data requires additional legal basis / justifications.

Special Category Personal Data

IRI `https://w3id.org/dpv#SpecialCategoryPersonalData`
Term: SpecialCategoryPersonalData
Definition: Sensitive Personal Data whose use requires specific legal permission or justification
SubType of: dpv:SensitivePersonalData
Note: The term 'special category' is based on GDPR Art.9, but should not be considered as exlusive to it. DPV considers all Special Categories to also be Sensitive, but whose use is either prohibited or regulated and therefore requires additional legal basis for justification.
