Q. Can we capture information about users, such as their name and email address?


Users personal data can only be shared with a publisher with the consent of their customers. User-managed access (UMA) is an option for Identity Providers as a means of managing the user consent process.

Most access management federations such as the OpenAthens Federation have an attribute release policy that allows personally identifiable information to be exchanged in a way that meets data protection governance and compliance requirements (including GDPR).
