When you deposit in the Edinburgh DataShare repository, you agree to these terms and conditions.
By agreeing to the terms outlined here, I assert that I am either the sole rights-holder or am permitted by all rights-holder(s) to deposit this dataset in such a repository thus, subject to any embargo period that I have specified in the metadata record for this item, making it openly available to all comers to download. By depositing this dataset in Edinburgh DataShare, I do not transfer ownership. I retain, inter alia, the right to deposit the item elsewhere in its present or future version(s). I retain all my moral rights in this work including the right to be acknowledged.
I warrant: that the content of my deposited dataset does not breach any law; it is original and does not infringe the copyright of any other person; if it contains material that is copyright of a third-party, I have secured permission from the rights-holder or her/his representative to include such material in my dataset; any third-party materials for which I have not secured the necessary permissions have been deleted from my dataset before deposit; if the dataset has been sponsored or subsidised by any institution or organisation other than my employer, I have fulfilled all obligations to that institution or organisation regarding publication.
I do not guarantee that the dataset is accurate. I indemnify the University of Edinburgh (hereafter referred to as 'the Host') against any legal action arising from the content of my dataset.
I assert that the host:
If my deposited dataset is subject to complaint, the Host reserves the right to invoke Edinburgh DataShare's Takedown policy. The Host reserves the right to revise that policy.
Should a dataset be removed from Edinburgh DataShare by either the repository or the depositor, the Host reserves the right to retain its metadata record in the repository as trace of the dataset. This informs users of Edinburgh DataShare that the removal of this dataset was deliberate.
The Host accepts no responsibility for mistakes, omissions, or legal infringements within the deposited object. While every care will be taken to preserve the dataset, the Host is not liable for loss or damage to the dataset or any other data while it is stored in Edinburgh DataShare (or any repository to which the dataset is subsequently migrated, as indicated above).
This agreement shall be governed by the law of Scotland and shall take effect on the date of deposit.
