Both HKBU and ORCID take issues relating to data privacy very seriously. ORCID will only ask you for non-sensitive personal information (e.g. name, affiliations, publication details, etc). For every piece of information you provide, you have the option to make it public, limited access, or private:

Thus it is still possible to have an ORCID iD without publicly displaying any information. However, to get the most out of ORCID, we recommend that you make all of your information public.
