Description of RADAR4Culture
RADAR4Culture is an online service for the publication of research data resulting from completed scientific studies and projects.
It is based on the RADAR service and operated by FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure GmbH
(hereinafter referred to as "we" or "us"). As a data provider, you can use RADAR4Culture to compile research data into datasets,
annotate these datasets with metadata, store them permanently and make them publicly available.
RADAR4Culture allows for the permanent and unaltered storage of datasets for a defined period of time ("Retention Period") within
the scope of the storage quota provided for this project. For published datasets, RADAR4Culture guarantees actual storage of at least 25 years.
FIZ Karlsruhe ensures an uninterrupted functioning of the service as far as possible, but is entitled to interrupt access if this becomes
necessary for technical or legal reasons.
During the retention period, RADAR4Culture does not modify the stored datasets any more, but only ensures their physical preservation
("bitstream preservation"). Accordingly, RADAR4Culture guarantees neither the permanent usability nor the interpretability of the data
contained in a dataset, as these depend on the availability of the data formats selected by the data provider and corresponding programs
for their interpretation.
Datasets in permanent storage can no longer be modified. In justified exceptional cases, the operator shall be entitled to block the datasets.
Justified exceptional cases include, for example, legal violations or incorrect data. In the case of a blocking, only the research data is blocked,
but not the metadata. These contain a note that the data has been blocked.
- For the purposes of RADAR4Culture on the basis of your chosen license you grant us simple, temporally and spatially unlimited rights
of use to the research data you have uploaded to the service. Your rights to the data are not thereby affected.
- You will license any transferred metadata with a Creative Commons (CC0) license and thus provide its free use by the general public.
- You release us from third party claims that could be made against us as a result of any legal or rights infringements perpetrated by
you and support us, if necessary, in fending off any claims made by third parties.
