If personal data no longer serve their initial purpose, but are to be kept in a personalised form for the purpose of historical, statistical or scientific use, the Data Protection Directive and Convention 108 allow this possibility on condition that appropriate safeguards against misuse are applied.

 The Data Protection Directive explicitly declares that the “further processing of data for historical, statistical or scientific purposes shall not be considered as incompatible provided that Member States provide appropriate safeguards”.

Keeping data for future scientific, historical or statistical use is explicitly exempt from the principle of limited data retention in the Data Protection Directive.126 Such ongoing storage and use of personal data must, however, be accompanied by special safeguards under national law.

Article 11 of the directive, which relates to the obligation to inform a data subject when the data have not been obtained from him or her, also says that there will be no such obligation, in particular for processing for statistical purposes or for the purposes of historical or scientific research, where: • the provision of such information proves impossible; or • it would involve a disproportionate effort; or • the recording or disclosure of the data is expressly laid down by law.
