Condition of Use

When using FOCAL data, you agree ...

... to inform us prior to any publication where FOCAL data products are planned to be used,

... to offer us co-authorship for any planned peer-reviewed publication based on FOCAL data products (for non peer-reviewed publications it is sufficient if you add an appropriate acknowledgement),

... not to distribute the FOCAL data products to any third party (the only exception being colleagues working in your institute, in this case you agree to inform them about the conditions listed here and that they also have to accept these conditions).
