Under no circumstances are researchers bound contractually or in any other legal theory with respect to data (i) for direct damages or (ii) for loss of earnings, Indirect, random, punitive or consecutive damage of any kind (note: this is an example of ACA for records that have de-defined data from human subjects) A Data Use Agreement (AEA) is a contractual document used for the transfer of data developed by non-profit, public or private companies when the data is not public or subject to other restrictions. Often, this data is a necessary component of a research project and can be data from human subjects from a clinical trial or data set limited to the meaning of HIPAA. Universities will want to ensure that the terms of the AAU protect confidentiality if necessary, but allow for adequate publication and sharing of research results, in accordance with academic guidelines, applicable laws and regulations, and federal requirements. Confidentiality agreements are similar in that they limit the use and disclosure of the data set and, in some cases, a CDA format can serve as a starting point for creating an ASA suitable for data transmission. This agreement represents the entire agreement between the downloader and the researcher regarding the download and use of the data and replaces all prior or simultaneous communications and suggestions between the downloader and the researcher. If a provision in this agreement proves unenforceable or invalid, that provision is limited or removed to the minimum necessary for the agreement to remain in full force and remain effective and applicable. Download compensates and maintains upload data sets free of and against all losses, costs, costs, liability or damages, including, but not limited to all reasonable legal fees and legal fees that are eliminated: All BU researchers in each school/institute/other BU department that receive data for research must comply with this protocol.
