The Service provides you with the ability to post User Uploads and display, organize, accept and distribute User Uploads by creating a dataverse. The Service provides you with the ability to post User Uploads to other dataverses administered by other Users. The Service also allows you to share datasets and dataverses with other Users by searching for their first name, last name, email address, or username.
The Service also gives each Administrator the ability to change dataset access/download restrictions by designating User Uploads as Restricted User Submissions. Datasets are by default unpublished, but Administrators can modify the access restrictions and Publish or deaccession any User Uploads at any time. Depending on the permissions granted by the Administrator of the Dataverse in question, Depositors may also change dataset access/download restrictions by designating User Uploads as Restricted User Submissions.
University of Manitoba Dataverse has no obligation to monitor the Site, Service, Content, or User Uploads. University of Manitoba Dataverse may remove any User Upload at any time for any reason (including, but not limited to, upon receipt of claims or allegations from third parties or authorities relating to such User Upload), or for no reason at all.
You acknowledge that University of Manitoba Dataverse does not endorse, take responsibility for, or make any representations or warranties for any User Uploads, and will not be liable for 1) User Upload content, format, Metadata, or lack thereof; 2) representations or warranties made by the User about the User Uploads; and 3) any loss of or damage to User Uploads, either in whole or in part, from whatever cause.

You also grant to University of Manitoba Dataverse all necessary permissions, waivers and required licenses to share any Published Content’s metadata you submit or deposit with DataCite (http://datacite.org).
None of the above supersedes any prior contractual obligations with third parties that require any information to be kept confidential. Nothing in this Agreement obligates you to disclose information to University of Manitoba Dataverse if such information is otherwise confidential or proprietary. University of Manitoba Dataverse does not approve User Uploads before they are posted; therefore, you are solely responsible for the User Submissions you post on or through the Service and all possible confidentiality or other privacy issues that may arise from your posting any User Uploads.
