Dataset removal

There are instances where data.gov.au have harvested data from other open data government sites. What happens if the source dataset is removed? Will it be removed from data.gov.au once the reference to the source dataset is removed? What is the process for having it removed from data.gov.au?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Kyla

Crawlers harvest data from other known repositories. It’s then stored and a reference to the original source is generated. If the original is removed Data.gov.au won’t remove it’s copy.

If you’d like to remove your data, log into Data.gov.au as your organisation’s admin(s) and delete the data.
