Doesn't count. Privacy does not end. Even dead individuals (entities)
have a right to be respected. Until the data is of historic interrest
it will be unreadable anyway. The only way out would be to read the
data and properly archive it, but never analyze it. (And as I
understand it the Sergey wants to analyze the data.)

Don't forget to add a Digital Rosetta Stone!
