CLARIN End-User License Agreements (EULA)

Suomeksi

In the Language Bank of Finland, the the terms and conditions specified in the End-User License Agreement of an individual resource are usually based on an agreement between the Language Bank, the rightholder of the resource, and possibly also the Data Controller of the resource (cf. the template for deposition license agreements). Some resources may have been previously published online under a public license.

Try selecting a suitable combination of license conditions for your resource with the CLARIN Licence Category Calculator (NB: license version 1.0 only).
