What is the Common Legal Framework (CLF)?
This is the foundational document among our legal components. The Common Legal Framework is a framework to govern data sharing, which defines the roles, responsibilities of Participants, IP ownership, confidentiality, privacy, data destruction, etc. The Data Republic Common Legal Framework is executed once offline by the Participant.
In this article, you will learn about:
The CLF for multi-party data sharing projects
For organizations to participate in data sharing projects together, they must have signed the same legal agreement. This ensures that all organizations are aligned on all terms and responsibilities for all data sharing projects between each other. The CLF forms a common shell for repeatable use, and has been developed to be as broadly applicable as possible. If an organization prefers to sign a Third Party agreement instead, each party involved in a Project must also sign the same Third Party agreement, to ensure that each party agrees to the same terms.
The Data License
While the CLF covers the overall responsibilities for Participants, the Data License specifies the use case terms, including the permitted use of data. The Data License references the CLF (and EULAs if applicable). This is a legally binding online form executed by the Customer and Guests or Partners. This document constitutes a stand-alone contract between Participants.
