Privacy and Visibility

When you create an ORCID record, you can choose to make any element (other than the ORCID iD number, which is always visible) visible by everyone (Public), visible only to a selected groups of Member institutions which also known as your Trusted Organizations (Trusted), or visible only to you and Trusted Individuals you designate (Only Me). This is further described in images which include the definitions of Everyone, Trusted, and Only Me below.
