Hi all,

We received the following comments from Annette about the Data Sensitive
introduction section.

"The introduction gives a lot of advice that sounds like it should be in a
BP. I find it awkward that we offer it in this form instead of a BP. If we
want to say that it is out of scope, then we shouldn't be offering all this
advice in an introduction."

"the discussion of sensitive data still needs a disclaimer, and the text
should me more general rather than focused only on personal privacy."

When I was reviewing the text, I started to think if we should change the
title and the introduction of the section to talk about data unavailability
in general. As presented in the title of the BP ("Provide an explanation
for data that is not available"), it refers to data that is not available
(in general) rather than just Sensitive Data.

So, I'd like to know the opinion of the group abou this. Do you think we
should change the title and the scope of the introduction of the Data
Sensitive section?

I also have doubts about the subtitle: "For data that is not open, provide
an explanation about how the data can be accessed and who can access it."

I'm not sure if we should use the term "open". Maybe, we can say "For data
that is not available" rather than "For data that is not open". What do you
