Data curation is the management of data throughout its life cycle, from its initial capture and storage to the moment it is archived for posterity or becomes obsolete and deleted. The primary goal of data curation is to ensure that data can be retrieved reliably, safely, and efficiently.

The Data Observatory provides data curation capabilities, maintaining their privacy and security under the cloud model. For this, it provides the following guarantees:

  1. Data confidentiality model. All the data delivered to the Data Observatory is under a confidentiality agreement that guarantees access and use of them only for users / developers specified in said agreement;
  2. Data privacy. It is considered as the right of the data provider to have control over how they are used (access, use, etc.), so the data received from their providers is handled under the highest security standards and best practices.
