Data Use Agreement & Acknowledgements

AMP PD Data Use Agreement

I request access to data available through the Accelerating Medicines Partnership® (AMP®) Parkinson’s Disease (AMP PD) Knowledge Platform for scientific investigation, teaching or the planning of clinical research studies and agree to the following terms: 

  1. I acknowledge and agree that this AMP PD Data Use Agreement (“Agreement”) grants me permission as set forth below to use the AMP PD Knowledge Platform and data contained within and describes my obligations with respect to the AMP PD Knowledge Platform.
  2. I acknowledge that the data contained in the AMP PD Knowledge Platform includes data from both the AMP PD program and the Global Parkinson’s Genetics Program (GP2).  I acknowledge and agree that this Agreement describes my rights and obligation with respect to data from both programs, collectively referred to as “AMP PD Data” in this Agreement.  
  3. I will have access to de-identified data. I will maintain the AMP PD Data in de-identified form and will not attempt to re-identify the data in any way or establish the identity of any of the subjects who are or may be the sources of the AMP PD Data. If I am in possession of any data that can be used, either alone or in combination with any other information, to re-identify any subjects, I will immediately notify the AMP PD Access and Compliance Team (AMP PD ACT) at act@amp-pd.org and the GP2 Access and Compliance Team (GP2 ACT) at act@gp2.org.  Such notification must occur within 24 business hours.  
  4. I will not attempt to directly contact the cohort Principal Investigators (PIs) or staff associated with the studies that are part of the AMP PD and GP2 programs, the data from which are added to the AMP PD Knowledge Platform, concerning additional information regarding individual subjects, provided that, for clarity, contacts that are not specifically related to individual subjects are permitted. 
  5. I will use the AMP PD Knowledge Platform solely to access and analyze the AMP PD Data in accordance with this Agreement.
  6. I will not disclose or use AMP PD Data beyond the permitted disclosures and uses outlined in this Agreement. I will not sell, rent, lease, loan, or license the AMP PD Data to any third party.
  7. I will require anyone with whom I will share relevant AMP PD Data, including others on my team and within my institution, to comply with this Agreement by having them become an approved registered user of the AMP PD Knowledge Platform and agreeing to these terms through signature on or acceptance of this Agreement, as applicable, prior to my sharing of the data. 
  8. I may disclose AMP PD Data only to individuals who are registered users of the AMP PD Knowledge Platform and have the appropriate data access approval for the data I am sharing.
  9. I will respond promptly and accurately to annual requests by the AMP PD ACT and the GP2 ACT to update my application information. 
  10. Should I elect to use the Terra environment for analyses, I agree to abide by the Terra terms of service developed by the Terra platform operators.
  11. Should I elect to download AMP PD Data, my host institution accepts responsibility for the security of the downloaded data, as verified by the institutional signature on this Agreement. I will also provide documentation to the appropriate ACT (act@amp-pd.org and/or act@gp2.org) as to why I am downloading the data. I acknowledge that I will be responsible for all costs associated with the download.
  12. I will retain control over the AMP PD Data and will use appropriate administrative, physical and technical security safeguards to prevent use or disclosure of the AMP PD Data other than as provided for by this Agreement.  
  13. I will immediately report any inadvertent data release, including breach of data security or other data management incidents, to AMP PD ACT, act@amp-pd.org, and GP2 ACT, act@gp2.org. Such reports must occur within 24 business hours.
  14. I will contact AMP PD ACT, act@amp-pd.org, and GP2 ACT, act@gp2.org, without undue delay if I suspect that AMP PD Data are improperly shared on the AMP PD Knowledge Platform, if I am concerned that AMP PD Data shared on the AMP PD Knowledge Platform are improperly or incompletely de-identified, or if I suspect unauthorized use of AMP PD Data.  Such contact shall occur within 24 business hours.
  15. I will comply with any rules imposed by my institution and its institutional review board, as well as any federal, state and local laws and regulations, in each case, that apply to my use of AMP PD Data, provided such institutional rules do not conflict with the obligations owed by me under this Agreement. In the presence of such an unresolved conflict, I will cease to use the AMP PD Data until a suitable resolution is identified and implemented and the obligations of this Agreement continue to prevail without hinderance.
  16. I acknowledge that the AMP PD program and GP2 have separate intellectual property policies and agree as follows:
    1. Data from the AMP PD program were generated under and are subject to an existing arrangement that has the following AMP PD Intellectual Property Policy that states: “AMP PD users agree not to file patent applications on research discoveries made using the AMP PD Data, except in the rare instance when a consensus of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH), the AMP PD Steering Committee and the AMP Executive Committee agree that it is in the best interests of the partnership and public health to do so. Intellectual property developed under National Institutes of Health (NIH) awards are subject to applicable Federal law, regulation, and NIH policy.”  Accordingly, it is in the rare instance that the AMP PD Steering Committee, through an approval protocol, will deem that it is in the best interest of the AMP PD program and the public health to grant an exception. If an exception is granted, I agree to grant the funding partners of the AMP PD program a nonexclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable license to use and/or disclose the intellectual property rights in and to the research discoveries made using the AMP PD Data for noncommercial research purposes.
    2. GP2 has been established as a pre-competitive consortium.  I agree not to file a patent application on research discoveries made using data from GP2.  I understand that I am not precluded from claiming intellectual property rights on improvements to existing intellectual property using data from GP2.  
  17. I understand in accessing the AMP PD Knowledge Platform I am not granted any intellectual property rights and I will not seek any right, title or interest in the clinical data, analysis results, or other intellectual property uploaded into the AMP PD Knowledge Platform that are owned by other individuals or entities, without the express written consent of the individuals or entities who uploaded the information to the AMP PD Knowledge Platforms.
  18. I agree, subject to Sections 16 and 17 above, that all data and discoveries generated by me from analyses of AMP PD Data (collectively, the “Study Materials Results”) will become and be deemed part of the public domain through the AMP PD Knowledge Platform. I will not seek intellectual property protection of the Study Materials Results and will make the Study Materials Results freely available without charge to the research community through the AMP PD Knowledge Platforms.  
  19. By accessing the AMP PD Knowledge Platform, I waive any and all claims against the AMP PD and GP2 programs, the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, Inc., the AMP PD funding and research partners, and the GP2 funding and research partners with respect to or arising from my use of the AMP PD Knowledge Platform or the AMP PD Data.
  20. It is the policy of the AMP PD and GP2 programs to make analyzed data available to investigators as quickly as possible. Data analysis for the AMP PD and GP2 programs are expected to take years as methods for data analysis evolve. Therefore, I understand that any data and/or results that I access might be preliminary. Finally, because “preliminary data” will be posted on the database, in the event that I use or download AMP PD Data for the purposes of analysis and future publication in the form of abstracts, manuscripts, or other publications, I will: (a) note in such abstracts, manuscripts, or other  publications the defined version of the data used in my analysis and the date of download, (b) prior to my submission of any material for publication, check the AMP PD Knowledge Platform to determine if updated data is available,  and (c) if the data is updated, note in such material for publication that the data has been updated in the AMP PD Knowledge Platform.
  21. If I seek to publish manuscripts incorporating AMP PD Data or Study Materials Results, I agree to comply with the AMP PD Publications Policy guidelines and/or the Publication Policy of the GP2program, as applicable, including sending manuscripts to the AMP PD Publications Committee and/or the GP2 Steering Committee for administrative review prior to publication of a final manuscript. The administrative review is conducted to ensure compliance with this Agreement and does not constitute editorial control by the AMP PD Publications Committee and GP2  Steering Committee. 
  22. In my manuscripts and presentations incorporating AMP PD Data or Study Materials Results, I will acknowledge the AMP PD and/or GP2 program(s), AMP PD and/or GP2 funders, and the relevant cohorts who provided data to the AMP PD and/or GP2 programs by including language similar to the following:
