and solely via the Founder’s authorization, with no other instrument — including the Codes and Policies — capable of being accepted or construed or otherwise serving as its equivalent.

reference to and use of the terms “profile” and “profiling” mean and refer only and specifically to:

As Always Operative
the meaning of the terms as including the always operative clauses delineated in the Definitions section of the Codes and Policies, under “Always Operative.”
As in Data, Information, Research
further defined to mean and refer to any data or information processing or research and investigation conducted to analyze, evaluate, predict, or otherwise make decisions concerning aspects, attributes, or characteristics relating to a natural person, for example, an individual’s behavior or habits, choices or decision-making, economic or financial situation, health, fitness or wellness, hobbies or interests, location or movements, performance at work, personal preferences, psychology, reliability, rest or sleep, etc.
Where Automated
further defined, in the context of data and information processing or research and investigation, to have the terms “automated individual decision-making” and “automated decision-making” mean and refer to any such profiling primarily or solely conducted by automated means — using, for instance, algorithms, artificial intelligence, or machine-learning — with the understanding that such automated decision-making often involves limited or no human participation in the analysis, equally limited human discernment in the decision-making, and thus reduced opportunity for holding an entity accountable or responsible when errors or adverse effects result.
Where Occurring
with the understanding that profiling may be occurring when an entity, office, or person is:
Occurring, Collecting
(a) collecting personal biospecimens, data, or information about a natural person from a variety of sources, some publicly accessible, some thought private;
Occurring, Analyzing
(b) analyzing the collected personal biospecimens, data, or information on an intimate or large scale, for aspects, attributes, or characteristics of the natural person concerned and other individuals;
Occurring, Associating
(c) looking for associations in the collected biospecimen, data, or information to identify correlations between those aspects, attributes, or characteristics and behaviors of the natural person concerned and other individuals;
Occurring, Profile-Creating
(d) creating profiles that can be associated with, applied to and tracked with the natural person concerned;
Occurring, Predicting
(e) predicting behavior based on the assigned, applied or tracked profiles; or
Occurring, Decision-Making
(f) making decisions about the natural person concerned based on assessments during this process.
Decisions with Legal Effects
with the understanding that such profiling, especially their decisions and predictions, often have or lead to legal or similarly significant effects for a natural person concerned, whose consequences and implications warrant ethical attention, especially since finding an association or correlation in the sets of collected biospecimens, data, or information does not mean that it is significant or that it would be accurate, appropriate, correct or ethical to use it in making the decisions in question.
Warranting Protections
with the understanding, therefore, that conduct or service entailing profiles or profiling — including any activity, agent, arrangement, or involved material or matter — require and remain under strict protections, as provided for in the Codes and Policies, the Policy on Data and Information or the Policy on Human Subjects Research and Investigation, and applicable law and regulation.
Warranting Risk Minimizing
with the further understanding that natural persons concerned should, per Policy, ensure and verify that such profiling has been and remains properly conducted and, moreover, does not incur high or even more than minimal risk to the natural person concerned. Such risk vigilance and minimization may be fulfilled by ensuring:
Risk Minimizing, Informing
(i) that the natural person concerned be reasonably informed before, during and after the processing or research;
Risk Minimizing, Prohibiting
(ii) that in certain instances — where the individual is a child — such processing and research be strictly prohibited;
Risk Minimizing, Protecting
(iii) that in other instances — where sensitive biospecimens, data, and information are involved — additional protections be in place;
Risk Minimizing, Assessing
(iv) that in other instances — for instance, large-scale processing, or monitoring a publicly accessible place — such collected biospecimens, data, or information and their associated risks be minimized by conducting a “processing risks assessment,” “profiling risks assessment” or a “research risks assessment” then addressing any concerns found; and finally
Risk Minimizing, Consenting
(v) that the natural person concerned be asked to consent, where such person is, following a reassuring risks assessment, permitted to consent.

‘Pseudo-anonymization, -nymization’

reference to and use of the terms “pseudo-anonymization,” “pseudonymization,” and “pseudonymized” mean and refer only and specifically to:

As Always Operative
the meaning of the terms as including the always operative clauses delineated in the Definitions section of the Codes and Policies, under “Always Operative.”
Pseudonymized, Matter
further defined to mean and refer to, in the context of data and information processing or research and investigation, any biospecimen, data, or information that does not permit or result in identification, either directly or indirectly, without the use of additional information kept separately and subject to “technical and organizational measures” to ensure such non-identification.
Pseudonymized, Means
further defined to mean and refer to, in the context of data and information processing or research and investigation, the access, collection, or other processing of any biospecimen, data, or information via means or method that does not permit or result in identification, either directly or indirectly, without the use of additional information kept separately and subject to “technical and organizational measures” to ensure such non-identification.
Pseudonymized, Means
with the understanding that pseudonymization is typically employed to make processing and research highly protective and respectful of consent, confidentiality, privacy, and security as well as for-purpose-only uses with respect to the natural person concerned and the biospecimen, data, or information; thus the “technical and organizational measures” (required, for example, by the European Union’s GDPR law) serve as a means to increase protections around “re-identifying information” that — when necessary or upon an authorized or authenticated user’s request — could be combined to re-attribute personal biospecimens, data, and information to a natural person concerned.
Still Personal
with the understanding that any biospecimen, data, or information that has undergone a process of pseudonymization or been described as “pseudonymized” remain personal, since it could still be, and is often expressly designed to be, used to identify a natural person concerned, for example, when locked-out users request to regain access to their account or stored content.
Still Protected
with the result that any such pseudonymized personal biospecimen, data, or information, as well as its access, collection, or other processing, require and remain under strict protections, as provided for in the Codes and Policies, the Policy on Data and Information or the Policy on Human Subjects Research and Investigation, and applicable law and regulation. For this reason, natural persons concerned should still, per Policy, ensure and verify that such irreversible pseudonymization has been and remains properly and truly conducted.
Hence Distinctions
hence The Ikoku Philanthropies’s efforts to make clear distinctions between it use of the terms de-identification, non-identification, pseudo-anonymization or pseudonymization, and irreversible anonymization.

‘Representation’ and ‘Representative’

reference to and use of the terms “representation” and “representative” mean and refer only and specifically to:

As Always Operative
the meaning of the terms as including the always operative clauses delineated in the Definitions section of the Codes and Policies, under “Always Operative.”

when indicated as belonging to or part of The Ikoku Philanthropies, or an act or activity of The Ikoku Philanthropies, only as authorized and executed, solely by the Founder, Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku, to be an official representation or representative of The Ikoku Philanthropies,
Only via Founder Authorization
and solely via the Founder’s authorization, with no other instrument — including the Codes and Policies — capable of being accepted or construed or otherwise serving as its equivalent.

Where Systematic, Generalizable
further defined to mean and refer to a systematic activity, inquiry, or study conceived, designed, engaged in, evaluated, or otherwise utilized to contribute to or develop generalizable knowledge, with the understanding that any activity, inquiry, or study that meet this definition constitutes research or investigation for purposes of the Codes and Policies, whether or not conducted or supported under a program that is considered research or investigation for other purposes.
When of Ikoku Philanthropies, Only via Founder
when indicated as belonging to or part of The Ikoku Philanthropies, or an act or activity of The Ikoku PhilanthropiesPhilanthropies, only as authorized and executed, solely by the Founder, Alvan Azinna Chibuzo Ikoku, to be an officially authorized research or investigation of The Ikoku Philanthropies,

and solely via the Founder’s authorization, with no other instrument — including the Codes and Policies — capable of being accepted or construed or otherwise serving as its equivalent.

‘Risks of Processing’

reference to and use of the term “risks of processing” mean and refer only and specifically to:

As Always Operative
the meaning of the term as including the always operative clauses delineated in the Definitions section of the Codes and Policies, under “Always Operative.”
As in Data, Information, Research
further restricted to mean and refer to, in the context of data and information procession or research and investigation, the anticipated, assessed or reported risks of any processing of personal biospecimens, data, or information to the personal biospecimens, data, or information and also to the rights and associated interests of the natural person concerned or the human subject under study.
Risks From Damage
with the understanding that such risks, of varying likelihood and severity, may result from processing that leads to physical, material or non-material damage. Think, for instance, of processing that results in discrimination or discriminatory effects, financial loss, fraud, identity theft, reputational damage, unauthorized reversal of anonymization, deidentification or pseudonymisation, violations of confidentiality or privacy, or any other significant economic or social disadvantage. Think, too, of processing that deprives natural and legal persons of their rights or prevents them from exercising their personal data and information rights.
Where Risks High
Those risks are considered high where processing entails, and possibly reveals, sensitive personal biospecimens, data, and information, criminal convictions and offenses or related security measures. Processing is high-risk, too, where automated individual decision-making, including profiling, is involved; where personal biospecimens, data, and information of vulnerable natural persons, including children, are processed; where personal biospecimens, data, and information is being processed from or to monitor publicly accessible spaces; and where processing is done on a large scale and involves a large amount of personal biospecimens, data, and information, affecting a large number of persons who may also not be able to as easily exercise their Policy-specified rights pertaining to the biospecimens, data, and information. Think, also, of processing that may be sound in its methods but is conducted on personal biospecimens, data, and information that are sensitive or valuable, and where it would be considerably harmful to natural persons if there were accidental, malicious, unauthorized or unlawful access, alteration, destruction, disclosure, exposure, leakage, loss or theft.
Prohibited Unless Assessed, Minimized
For many of these situations, processing is strictly prohibited. But at times it may be permitted by conducting a “data processing risks assessment” or “research and processing risks assessment” then effectively addressing any concerns found and reported, including eliminating any identified factors leading to risks and further anonymizing or minimizing the personal biospecimens, data, and information.

‘Seal’ and ‘Sealed’

reference to and use of the terms “seal” and “sealed” mean and refer only and specifically to:

As Always Operative
the meaning of the terms as including the always operative clauses delineated in the Definitions section of the Codes and Policies, under “Always Operative.”

When of Ikoku Philanthropies, Only via Founder
