These Usage Guidelines for content and metadata are based on goodwill. They aren’t a legal contract, but we request that you follow these guidelines, if you re-use content and metadata from this website. Except where otherwise noted, the content available on the ECHO II website is published under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0) license, and the metadata are published under the terms of the Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication (CC0 1.0). Therefore, we request that you actively acknowledge and give attribution to all authors and sources, including the ECHO II website.
Give attribution to the authors and sources, including the ECHO II website. Make sure that others are aware of the rights status of the content and/or metadata, and are aware of these guidelines. One way you can do this is to keep links to the Creative Commons licences and to the CC0 Public Domain Dedication intact. If, for technical or other reasons, you cannot include all the appropriate source links and rights information alongside the content and/or metadata that you have re-used, you should consider including them separately, for example in a separate document that is distributed with the content and/or metadata. If, for technical or other reasons, you cannot include all the appropriate source links and rights information alongside the content and/or metadata that you have re-used, you may consider linking only to the one specific source where all available sources and rights information can be found, including machine-readable formats.
