(Note: This is an example of a DUA for records that anonymized human subject data) The data is provided “as intended” and “available” and without any warranties, including, but not limited to, non-infringement, market access and fitness for a particular purpose, as well as all warranties that are implied by any performance or commercial use, all expressly excluded. OSP is a campus signatory for research-based data use agreements. DUAS must be forwarded to OSP through Kuali Research for approval and final approval. OSP has the right to enter into contractual agreements, including DUAs, on behalf of UMBC to ensure compliance with appropriate rules and policies. Researchers do not have the right to negotiate or sign these agreements and cannot sign a DUA on behalf of UMBC. AEDs should not be signed by faculty or university staff if no psO institutional authorization has been granted in this regard. This agreement constitutes the overall agreement between the downloader and the researchers regarding the download/download and use of data and replaces all prior or simultaneous communications and proposals between the downloader and the researcher. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or deleted to the minimum necessary for the Agreement to remain in full force and effect, effective and enforceable. The Downloader releases the dataset loaders from all losses, costs, expenses, liabilities or damages, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys` and court fees for the following reasons: This is an agreement (“agreement”) between you, the downloader and the owner of the materials (“users”), which govern the use of the materials (“materials”). Without limiting the above, researchers who upload recordings do not guarantee: it is important that researchers read the terms of a DUA before forwarding the draft contract to the UMBC Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) for verification. It is the responsibility of the researcher to understand and follow the conditions of the DUA and to use the data only for the purposes indicated.

The PSO considers that a researcher who transmits a DUA to OSP has read these conditions and agrees to comply with these conditions, whether or not the researcher`s signature on the DUA itself is necessary. If a researcher signs such an agreement, he or she could be exposed to legal and financial risks. A researcher does not have to sign a DUA before the OSP authorization of the DUA. A Data Use Agreement (DUA) is a contractual document between a “data user” (usually the UMBC investigator who orders access to the information) and the “Data Set Source” (the organization or entity providing the data) that describes the provisions related to the transfer of confidential, protected or restricted use. Examples include records from government authorities or companies, information about student data, existing data on human research topics, and limited records. When searching for data containing personal identifiers but not falling within the above definition of IRB (e.g. . .
