Commercial Use of NARCCAP Data
 

The following briefly explans how to legally use NARCCAP data in for-profit enterprises.

Please email us at narccap@ucar.edu if you have further questions.


Commercial entities are permitted to use NARCCAP data, but the data itself must remain freely available and must not be sold.

In other words, it's fine to use the data as part of a for-profit enterprise, and it's fine to generate and sell products with commercial value from the data. What's not okay is repackaging the data and selling it without doing anything to it that adds value.

Also, NARCCAP (and its funding agencies) need to be acknowledged as the source of the data. Whenever possible, we'd like it if there were a link of some kind back to the NARCCAP website for interested end-users to access the data for themselves. (This is simply the restatement of what's on the Acknowledgements page reframed for commercial use:http://narccap.ucar.edu/about/acknowledgements.html)

Naturally, all the usual disclaimers regarding lack of fitness for purpose, merchantability, liability, etc. from the NCAR Terms of Use page (http://www.ucar.edu/legal/terms_of_use.shtml) also apply.
