  • (2) “Misuse” means—
  • (a) using information in a way that violates the agreement with the Health and Social Care Information Centre;
  • (b) using information in a way that does not violate the agreement with the Health and Social Care Information Centre, but that gives rise to use that is outside the agreed limits of use; or
  • (c) using information supplied by the Health and Social Care Information Centre in such a way as to allow or enable individual patients to be identified by a third party.
  • (3) A person who is guilty of an offence under subsection (1) is liable—
  • (a) on summary conviction, to an unlimited fine;
  • (b) on conviction on indictment, to imprisonment for not more than two years or a fine, or both.
