This Acceptable Use Policy governs your use of data.world. 

Do not use data.world inappropriately which includes, but is not limited to:

Respect intellectual property. Only upload to data.world content that you have the legal right to upload. When uploading a dataset that you did not create or own, be sure to follow the requirements for its license (which usually requires clear attribution), and select the proper license setting on data.world to reflect the license from the original data source. If you are unsure, ask the creator of the dataset. See also our licensing FAQs.

Respect privacy. Do not make datasets public if they contain personal information. Some examples of this type of information include datasets containing Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI), or Personal Financial Information (PFI). Before uploading any personal information that is regulated, you must enter into a separate agreement with us to upload that type of information:

PII (Personally Identifiable Information)  is information that either alone or in combination with other information could be used to identify, locate, or contact an individual. Some examples include: a person’s name, a person’s address, a person’s email address, a person’s social security number, or a person’s credit card number.

PHI (Protected Health Information) is information about health conditions, treatments or procedures a person has undergone, or payments someone has made or collected that can be linked to a specific person.

PFI (Personal Financial Information) is information about financial condition, transactions, or activities that a person has undertaken that can be linked to a specific person.

Reporting. To report a violation of this policy, please email support@data.world. We’ll do our best to ensure that your concern is addressed in a timely and effective manner. If, for whatever reason, your email isn’t answered in a timely fashion, feel free to open a ticket on the system and let us know!
