- (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—
