Nobody read the terms and conditions. For this reasons our terms and conditions are short and simple to understand.
Summary: The use of Cheméo is welcome, abuse is not.
Why this terms? To allow us to block access to the two main abuse of Cheméo we had in the past. Some companies have downloaded the full database and included it in their products without referencing it. And some other companies are using the content of Cheméo to create website full of advertizing and malware.
Summary: We handle your personal data in the way we want services to handle our own personal data.
We spent a lot of time and money to maintain and make available this database. Please use it as you wish, but if you use data from Cheméo in your work, you must cite Cheméo the following ways:
For a website, you must provide the following link or equivalent on your about page: "Chemical and physical properties from Cheméo."
This correspond to this piece of HTML code:
<span>Chemical and physical properties from <a href="https://www.chemeo.com">Cheméo</a>.</span>
For an application, you need to provide the following text on the about screen: "Chemical and physical properties from Cheméo."
For a printed paper/publication, simply put: "Cheméo, chemical and physical properties (https://www.chemeo.com)" or the link to the specific page. Cheméo is well recognised, many publications and patent applications contain Cheméo as data reference.
This is easy to do and will help us a lot.
If you are using just a small subset of the data available in your work, we would of course appreciate a Cheméo citation, but it is way more important to cite the original work, be it an old database parsed/cleaned/extended and imported in Cheméo or an individual paper. Research is possible because we share/cite/exchange knowledge, do not be the one breaking this.
The database itself is copyrighted by Céondo GmbH for the structure and sui generis for the content. You are not allowed to pull all the data, include the data in your application without asking us. Learn more.
Your comments and remarks are welcome, just contact us: contact @ ceondo.com.
