WHEREAS a purpose of the GREO Evidence Centre is to retain, preserve and make accessible Datasets arising from research in the field of problem gambling;

AND WHEREAS the Data User intends by entering into this Agreement to access material from the Evidence Centre for the purpose of research subject to the terms and conditions herein;

NOW THEREFORE the undersigned parties agree as follows:


In this Agreement “Dataset” means the electronic file or files containing research data, and the supporting documentation sufficient to make that data useable.

The Schedules attached hereto form part of this Agreement.

This Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario.


GREO hereby grants the Data User access to Datasets within the Evidence Centre which are categorized as open.

Where the Data User has submitted a “Request to Access Restricted Data” application, in the form attached hereto as Schedule A, and GREO has approved the request in whole or in part, which shall be attached as Schedule B, the Data User shall have access to the restricted data as outlined therein.

Data Users approved for access to restricted data will be required to register with the Scholars Portal Dataverse Network and select a login name, which shall be provided to GREO and included at Schedule B.


A Dataset or any part of a Dataset shall only be used for the purposes of not-for-profit research, study, or personal educational development, except where the Data User has obtained the express written permission of GREO, which shall be subject to the approval of the copyright owner.


A Data User shall not:

(a) seek to obtain further information about, or initiate contact of any nature whatsoever with, individual subjects identified or identifiable in the Dataset;

(b) produce links within Datasets or between data and other Datasets that could identify individuals, institutions or organizations;

(c) redistribute Datasets in whole or in part to other individuals, institutions, or organizations, except those named in the Request to Access Restricted Data application form and included in the approval by GREO attached at Schedule B; or

(d) directly or indirectly, in any publication arising from use of the Dataset, identify an individual who has become known to the Data User as a result of access to the Dataset.

(e) use information contained in the Dataset for commercial purposes or financial gain.

In the event that the Data User breaches any of the above conditions of use, which GREO may determine at its sole discretion, GREO shall have the right to immediately suspend or terminate the Data User’s access to GREO Evidence Centre services, as well as pursue any other available remedies available at law.


The Data User shall acknowledge the Dataset Depositor(s) in any publication, whether printed, electronic or broadcast, which is in whole or in part derived from the Dataset, and shall further provide a link and reference the source of the original Dataset, using the citation provided.

The Data User will respect all restrictions identified in the Dataset(s).

The Data User will promptly inform GREO of any errors discovered in any part of the Dataset.

The Data User will immediately advise GREO if he or she becomes aware that the identity of any individual has been inadvertently revealed.


The Data User agrees to make available for deposit to the Evidence Centre any new dataset(s) developed and/or derived from the Data User’s secondary analyses of an existing Dataset.

The Data User further agrees to make available for deposit in a GREO repository of related publications any citations of published work or references based on an existing Dataset, and will where possible also make the published works available for deposit.

The deposit of the derived materials will include sufficient explanatory documentation to enable accessibility to other Evidence Centre users.


The Data User hereby acknowledges and agrees that access to the Dataset(s) does not convey to the Data User any intellectual property or other proprietary rights in the Dataset(s).


The Data User acknowledges and agrees that the role of GREO is limited to the operation and maintenance of the Evidence Centre, and as such GREO offers no warrantee or assurance, express or implied, as to the accuracy, completeness, or reliability of the Datasets in the Evidence Centre. Any and all uses and/or interpretations of the Datasets, or inferences arising from such use or interpretation, are neither monitored nor endorsed by GREO.
