IGMETS Data Policy 

Any time series data submitted to IGMETS will only be used for creation of the standard visualization figures and analyses used in the IGMETS report and in the IGMETS metabase.

The IGMETS web site and/or IGMETS metabase do not serve or provide any actual data.  They show standard figures and provide contact information (e.g., who to contact about the data or program).  Any party or person requesting data directly from IGMETS itself will be forwarded to the original data provider.

The IGMETS time series data are stored on a secure computer within an institutional firewall.  They are not stored on this public IGMETS web site or in any location where other IGMETS participants might gain access to them. 

The IGMETS time series data will only be handled by the IGMETS data manager (Todd O'Brien), who has successfully and discretely provided secure data handling for ICES and SCOR time series working groups since 2004.

IGMETS participants will not have access to anyone else's data.  (Your participation in IGMETS does not give you access to other's data.  Others will also not have access to your data.)
