Abstract

The Data Privacy Vocabulary (DPV) provides terms (classes and properties) to annotate and categorize instances of legally compliant personal data handling according to the EU General Data Protection Regulation. This scope could be extended by later versions to other data and privacy protection regulations. The vocabulary provides terms to describe which personal data Categories are undergoing a specified kind of processing by a specific data controller and/or transferred to some recipient for a particular purpose, based on a specific legal ground (e.g., consent, or other legal grounds such as legitimate interest, etc.), with specified technical and organisational measures and restrictions (e.g., storage locations and storage durations) in place.

The namespace for DPV terms is http://www.w3.org/ns/dpv#

The suggested prefix for the DPV namespace is dpv

The DPV ontology is available here.

The Github repository for DPV is here.

Editor's note

Participation

The DPVCG requests participation regarding open issues and welcomes suggestions on their resolution or mitigation. The list of open issues and their discussions to date can be found at https://www.w3.org/community/dpvcg/track/issues/open. Specifically, the DPVCG kindly requests proposals to extend its initial taxonomies by additional terms, where these are missing or need refinements in order to describe specific use cases of personal data handling. A list of issues at the time of creating this document can be found here. Other forms of participation such as comments and feedback are also welcome.

While we welcome participation via any and all mediums - e.g., via Github pull requests or issues, emails, papers, or reports - the formal resolution of contributions will be done via the DPVCG meeting calls and mailing lists. We therefore would suggest submitting submissions there once they reach the stage for formal approval.

Interested participants should submit their suggestions, feedbacks, and comments by 15th September 2019 in order to have them formally reviewed according to the scheduled timeline.

In order to propose/approve new terms, please include the following:

  • term - suggested URI/identifier
  • class/property - is the suggested term a class or a property?
  • description - a natural language description of the term as to be included in the vocabulary to describe the term in an unambiguous manner.
  • domain/range - for properties include information about domain and range
  • superclasses/subclasses - for classes include (if applicable) information about known sub/super-classes.
  • superproperties/subproperties - for properties include (if applicable) information about known sub/super-properties.
  • related terms - include if applicable otherwise related terms from other vocabularies and explain how they are related (e.g., skos:broader/skos:narrower, rdfs:seeAlso).
  • source - mention where the new term originates from (e.g., from a legal regulation or from an existing ontology, if possible with a link confirming the reference.

1. Introduction

The Data Privacy Vocabulary provides terms (classes and properties) to annotate and categorize instances of legally compliant personal data handling. In particular, the vocabulary provides extensible taxonomies of terms to describe the following components:

These terms are intended to annotate Legal Personal Data Handling in a machine-readable fashion, by specifying which personal data categories are undergoing a specific kind of processing, by a specific data controller and/or shared with some recipient for a particular purpose, based on a specific legal ground (e.g., consent or legitimate interest), with specific technical and organisational measures and restrictions (e.g., storage location and storage duration) in place.

Note

As the Legal Bases are dependant on legal jurisdictions, we provide the GDPR legal bases (based on Article 6 and Article 9) under a separate aligned vocabulary here.

Descriptions and respective annotations of Legal Personal Data Handling could be used for example to:

  1. declare personal data handling policies,
  2. declare consent for a personal data handling policy (by a specific consent action),
  3. transparently log/document specific personal data handling actions by a data controller, and finally
  4. to support automated checking of legal compliances of data handling ex ante (before data handling is actually performed), or ex-post (i.e. check compliance to a certain policy and/or consent)

3. Base Vocabulary

The ‘Base Vocabulary’ describes the top-level classes defining a policy for legal personal data handling. Classes and properties for each top-level class are further elaborated using sub-vocabularies, e.g., the Personal Data taxonomy. While all concepts within the vocabulary share a single namespace, the modular approach makes it possible to use the sub-vocabularies without the :PersonalDataHandling class, for example to refer only to purposes. Exceptions to this are the NACE purpose taxonomy extending the :Sector concept in the Purposes vocabulary, and the GDPR legal bases taxonomy extending the top-level :LegalBasis class, which are provided under a separate namespace to indicate their specialisation.

DPV base vocabulary
Figure 1 Base Vocabulary

An instance of PersonalDataHandling is associated with one or more instances of Personal Data Category, Purpose, Processing, Recipient, Technical and Organisation Measures, Legal Basis, and Data Controller. The vocabulary provides relevant properties for associating each top-level concept with the PersonalDataHandling class, such as hasPurpose and hasDataSubject to associate with Purpose and Data Subject respectively.

Currently, the DPV vocabulary does not provide any constraints on the inclusion or exclusion of concepts used to define an instance of PersonalDataHandling. Possibilities for this include use of OWL2 semantics and SHACL to define concepts mandatory in an instance of PersonalDataHandling. For example, one could define that every instance of PersonalDataHandling *MUST* have at least one Personal Data Category, Controller, Purpose, and Legal Basis.

The DPV base ontology is available as an individual module here.

4. Personal Data Categories

DPVCG provides broad top-level personal data categories adapted from the taxonomy provided by EnterPrivacy. The top-level concepts in this taxonomy refer to the nature of information (financial, social, tracking) and to its inherent source (internal, external). Each top-level concept is represented in the DPVCG vocabulary as a Class, and is further elaborated by subclasses for referring to specific categories of information - such as preferences or demographics.

Regulations such as the GDPR allow information about personal data used in processing to be provided either as specific instances of persona data (e.g., “John Doe”) or as categories (e.g., name). Additionally, the class SpecialCategoryPersonalData represents categories that are ‘special’ or ‘sensitive’ and require additional conditions as per GDPR’s Article 9.

The categories defined in the personal data taxonomy can be used directly or further extended to refer to the scope of personal data used in processing. The taxonomy can be extended by subclassing the respective classes to depict specialised concepts, such as “likes regarding movies” or combined with classes to indicate specific contexts. The class DerivedPersonalData one such context where information has been derived from existing information, e.g., inference of opinions from social media. Additional classes can be defined to specify contexts such as use of machine learning, accuracy, and source.

While the taxonomy is by no means exhaustive, the aim is to provide a sufficient coverage of abstract categories of personal data which can be extended using the subclass mechanism to represent concepts used in the real-world.

Note

The property :hasPersonalDataCategory has the range :PersonalDataCategory, therefore, the object of any triple using this property would be inferred as an instance of :PersonalDataCategory. It is an open question for how to refer to a personal data category (class) using this property, as it would infer that class to be an instance as well as a subclass of :PersonalDataCategory. The question is if this is intended and whether it would be semantically correct to specify dpv:hasPersonalDataCategory dpv:EmailAddress .? Other alternative is to scope it within a blank node as: dpv:hasPersonalDataCategory [ a dpv:EmailAddress] ., which this would conflate it with instances of email address e.g., < me@example.com > a dpv:EmailAddress.

The DPV Personal Data Categories ontology is available as an individual module here.

5. Purposes

DPVCG at present defines a hierarchically organized set of generic categories of data handling purposes. Regulations such as GDPR generally require a specific purpose to be declared in an understandable manner. We therefore suggest to declare the specific context as an instance of one or several dpv:Purpose categories and to always declare the specific purpose with a human readable description (e.g., by using rdfs:label and rdfs:comment). E.g.

Purposes can be further restricted to specific contexts using the class dpv:Context and the property dpv:hasContext. DPVCG provides a way to restrict purposes to a specific business sector using the class dpv:Sector and the property dpv:hasSector. Hierarchies for defining business sectors include [NACE] (EU), [NAICS] (US), [ISIC] (UN), and [GICS]. Multiple classifications can be used through mappings between sector codes such as [NACE-NAICS]. At the moment, we recommend to specify this sector in terms of the EU NACE codes, where the codes can be specified using the URI scheme dpv-nace: NACE-CODE.

Note

We provide an interpretation of the NACE revision 2 codes which uses rdfs:subClassOf to specify the hierarchy, available here.

We suggest selecting the most appropriate or applicable purpose over more abstract ones by selecting or extending the relevant classes in the purpose taxonomy. For example, the purpose Optimisation can be further clarified to be optimisation for the consumer, or the controller.

The DPV Purposes ontology is available as an individual module here.

6. Processing Categories

DPV provides a hierarchy of classes to specify the operations associated with the processing of personal data. Declaring the processing or processing categories associated with personal data is required by regulations such as the GDPR. Common processing operations such as collect, share, and use have certain constraints or obligations in GDPR, which makes it necessary to accurately represent them for personal data handling. While the term ‘use’ is liberally used to refer to a broad range of processing categories in privacy notices, we suggest to select and use appropriate terms to accurately reflect the nature of processing where applicable.

We define top-level classes to represent the following broad categories of processing - Disclose, Copy, Obtain, Remove, Store, Transfer, and Transform. Each of these are then further expanded using subclasses in the taxonomy, which includes terms defined in the definition of processing in GDPR (Article 4-2).

The DPV taxonomy provides properties with a boolean range to indicate the nature of processing regarding Systematic Monitoring, Evaluation or Scoring, Automated Decision Making, Matching or Combining, Large Scale processing, and Innovative use of new solutions - which are relevant towards interpretation of legal requirements such as GDPR compliance.

The DPV Processing ontology is available as an individual module here.

7. Technical and Organisational Measures

Regulations require certain technical and organisational measures to be in place depending on the context of processing involving personal data. For example, GDPR (Article 32) states implementing appropriate measures by taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing, as well as risks, rights and freedoms. Examples of measures stated in the article states include:

  1. the pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data
  2. the ability to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services
  3. the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident
  4. a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing

To address these requirements, the DPVCG defines a hierarchical vocabulary for declaring technical and organisational measures. For any of the declared measures defined below, we provide a generic ObjectProperty (dpv:measureImplementedBy), and for the values of this attribute, we either allow a blank node with a single rdfs:comment to describe the measure, or a URI to a standard or best practice followed, i.e. a well-known identifier for that standard or a URL where the respective document describes the standard. The class StorageRestriction represents the measures used for storage of data with two specific properties provided for storage location and duration restrictions.

In the future, we plan to provide a collection of URIs for identifying recommended standards and best practices. Future versions of this document may extend the vocabulary by an approved taxonomy of identifiers for such standards and best practices.

The DPV Technical and Organisational Measures ontology is available as an individual module here.

9. Recipients, Data Controllers, and Data Subjects

Defining recipients is important in the context of data privacy as it allows tracking the entities personal data is shared/transferred with. Similarly, a categorisation of Data Controllers and Data Subjects has bearing on the privacy of personal data handling, especially when considering situations such as where Data Subjects are children. The vocabulary currently provides a few top-level classes to describe such recipients and Data Subjects, with an invitation to suggest/provide more terms for future releases.

The DPV Recipients, Data Controllers, and Data Subjects ontology is available as an individual module here.

9.1 Classes

:Child | :DataProcessor | :ThirdParty

9.1.1 Child

Class: dpv:Child
Description: A 'child' is a natural legal person who is below a certain legal age depending on the legal jurisdiction.
Comments: A 'child' is distinct from a 'minor'. For example, the legal age for a 'minor' in most countries is 18, whereas a 'child' can be a minor below the age of 14.

A. Issues

General

  1. Do we need to formulate a notion of compliance in scope of the cg?
  2. Do we want to revisit a definition of "gdpr rights" in our definitions and taxonomies?
  3. Should our taxonomy include a distinction/modeling of data subjects to whom gdpr applies (eu citizens and/or locatedin eu)
  4. We may want to add a non-normative comment in the spec that/how the taxonomy can be used as skos.
  5. Do we need further temporal annotations for the personal data handling class?
  6. Do we need a generic mechanism to describe conditions, constraints and restrcitions to a specific processing or data category or can we re-use odrl's mechanism?
  7. How to express sensitivity of data?
  8. Ask for specific feedback on (un)ambiguity of the term descriptions
  9. Describe use-cases and examples showing how the vocabulary should be or can be used

Personal Data Categories

  1. Personal data cateories collected might be collected in an approximate manner (e.g., age vs. age range), should we provide a mechanism in the vocabulary to distinguish this?
  2. Should we add more subclasses to communicationrecording (e.g., distinguishing chats, personalmessaging, videocommunication, telephony, etc.) and which ones?
  3. Should we add more specific subclasses like countryofcitizenship, countryofresidence, countryofcurrentlocation to country and which ones?

Purposes

  1. Are there mappings to gics from other coding systems naics/nace/isic ...
  1. Do we need to further structure consent notice?

Recipients, Data Controllers, Data Subjects

  1. Where are categories of data controllers used, where are they useful? (cf. recital 98, 99, 100)
  2. We ask for particular feedback on whether and how to extend the list/taxonomy of controllers and recipients in the current vocabulary.
  3. Should we explicitly note that the the controller is always a recipient of the data, if not, do we need to make this explicit inth vocabulary, by declaring it?
