At the heart of the The DataTags system is an interview process. This process results in simple, easy to understand prescription for handling a dataset in a legally compliant way. Which laws are covered at this point?HIPAAFERPA, CIPSEA and Privacy Act.

The attached file shows the interview process for all these laws, as well as initial support for data use agreements. The interview starts at the top-right node (marked by a green "start" arrow) and flows from there.

The final system will, obviously, have an user friendly web interface. But for now, you can print this (I'd recommend using a large-format printer) and follow the process manually.

(legal disclaimer: the process is not fully vetted yet, don't use it as a sole legal advice... yet).
