OPEN DATABASE LICENSE OF THE NLG DIGITAL COLLECTIONS PLATFORM


Preamble

The Open Database License of the National Library of Greece (ODbL-NLG) is an open content license agreement specially designed for the NLG, intended to allow users to freely use, share, modify this Database for any non-commercial use, while maintaining this same freedom for others (Non-Commercial use). For public use of the databases or for works produced from the databases, or if Derivative Databases are created, attribution must be provided for every/any public use of the NLG databases in the manner specified in the ODbL-NLG. For any use or redistribution of the databases, or works produced from them, the license of the databases must be made clear to others, and any notices on the original NLG databases must be kept intact. Additionally, if Derivative databases are created from the NLG databases the Derivative databases or works produced from an adapted database must be distributed with an open content license that contains the same or compatible terms as the ODbL-NLG (Share-Alike). The ODbL-NLG does not allow for any commercial use of the licensed databases.

The NLG databases are subject to copyright protection, and therefore this document licenses these rights. Some jurisdictions, mainly in the European Union, have specific rights that cover databases (Sui Generis Rights), and so the ODbL-NLG addresses these rights that also apply to Greek copyright legislation. Also, the ODbL-NLG constitutes a binding agreement in contract for users of this NLG Database, which dictates that NLG Database users must comply with the conditions of this agreement in return for accessing the data and information in this NLG Database.

NLG Databases may contain a wide variety of types of content (images, audiovisual material, and sounds all in the same database), and so the ODbL-NLG only governs the rights over the Database, and not the contents of the Database individually. The NLG may use the ODbL-NLG together with another license for the contents, if the contents have a single set of rights that uniformly covers all of the contents. If the contents have multiple sets of different rights, the NLG will describe what rights govern what contents together in the individual record or in some other way that clarifies what rights apply.

Sometimes the contents of a database, or the NLG database itself, may be covered by other rights not addressed here in the ODbL-NLG (such as private contracts, trademark over the name, or privacy rights/data protection rights over information in the contents), and so the consultation of other documents or clearance of other rights before doing activities not covered by this ODbL-NLG is advised.

The NLG as Licensor and You as Licensee (as defined below) agree as follows:

1.0 Definitions

 “Collective Database” – Means this Database in unmodified form, as part of a collection of independent databases in themselves that together are assembled into a collective whole. A work that constitutes a Collective Database will not be considered a Derivative Database.

"Convey" - As a verb, means Using the Database, a Derivative Database, or the Database as part of a Collective Database in any way that enables a Person to make or receive copies of the Database or a Derivative Database. Conveying does not include interaction with a user through a computer network, or creating and using a Produced Work, where no transfer of a copy of the Database or a Derivative Database occurs. 

"Contents" – Means the contents of this Database, which includes the information, independent works, or other material collected into the Database. For example, the contents of the Database could be factual data or works such as images, audiovisual material, text, or sounds.

"Database Right" - Means rights resulting from the Chapter III ("sui generis") rights in the Database Directive (as amended and as transposed by member states), which includes the Extraction and Re-utilisation of the whole or a Substantial part of the Contents, as well as any similar rights available in the relevant jurisdiction under Section 10.4.

"Derivative Database" - Means a database based upon another database, and includes any translation, adaptation, arrangement, modification, or any other alteration of the original Database or of a Substantial part of the Contents.

"Extraction" - Means the permanent or temporary transfer of all or a Substantial part of the Contents to another medium by any means or in any form.

"Person" - Means a natural or legal person or a body of persons either incorporated or not.
