The Proprietor is the copyright holder of CAC 2.0 and is entitled to
grant a license to the User.
The User is an academic, educational or research institution,
or other organization, or an
individual wishing to make use of CAC 2.0 for research and/or education
This agreement is made on the date of submission and effective
The User is granted a non-exclusive license to use, modify, enlarge
or enrich CAC 2.0 to extract information directly or indirectly in
any form and volume, provided that CAC 2.0 itself or any derivative
work is used only by the User her/himself or his/her immediate
collaborators, employees, managers and/or her/his students from the
same Institution for research purposes only, and provided she/he is
continuously observing all the terms and conditions contained in
this Agreement. If any part of CAC 2.0 contains its own
license or an additional restriction, the more restrictive version
and/or amendment of the license shall be in effect, unless
specifically stated otherwise in such a part. In particular, all
the documentation which is provided in either
RTF, PDF or PostScript format
should be considered a personal copy of the respective
Author's reprint and handled as such.
The User shall not use CAC 2.0 itself or any derivative work
(including but not limited to statistics obtained by using it or
any derivative work thereof) based on it (however small the
contribution of CAC 2.0 to such derivative work is) in whatever form
for commercial purposes of any kind, nor for a deployment in any
routinely used application, regardless whether it is of commercial
nature or not.
The User shall include the following notice in all publications or
publicly available materials, regardless of their form (printed,
electronic, or other), describing work which uses CAC 2.0:
The Czech Academy Corpus, version 2.0
has been developed by the Institute of Formal and Applied
In the case of printed materials, such as papers, journal articles,
etc., the reference to the Czech Academic 2.0 Guide (published by the Charles University Press, Karolinum)
should be included; in the case of
electronic publications on the Internet, the reference to the
aforementioned web page should be included as a web link. Due to
Proprietor's obligations with regard to the text copyright holders,
text examples and citations from CAC 2.0 or any derivative work
(regardless whether they include any annotations or not) are limited
to 200 words per publication or series of publications on the same
topic (whether printed, electronic, or in any other form).
The User agrees not to re-distribute or otherwise make publicly
available CAC 2.0, or any derivative work based on it as described
in pgraph 3, to a third party without a prior written permission
of the Proprietor, with the exception of examples and citations as
described in pgraph 4.
The User undertakes to adopt any security measures needed to
protect the Proprietors' copyright in CAC 2.0 and undertakes to take
all reasonable steps to ensure that no unauthorized use is made of
CAC 2.0 and of any copies, derivative works or extracts thereof.
Any usage of CAC 2.0 which does not conform to the specification set
forth in the 3rd pgraph of this Agreement (such as,
e.g., commercial usage of CAC 2.0) is subject of septe
negotiations and a written contract between the User and the
Proprietor and/or other parties. The Proprietor is in general
not obliged to
enter and/or conclude such negotiations.
CAC 2.0 is provided as is. Therefore the Proprietor does not
warrant the usefulness of CAC 2.0 for any purpose, regardless
of formulations which can be found at some places in the accompanying
stating the intended purpose and use of CAC 2.0.
If the User reports to the Proprietor any discovered errors,
inconsistencies or suggested corrections or improvements to CAC 2.0,
the Proprietor undertake: (a) to maintain these comments in
confidence and to use them only for the purposes of improving,
modifying and/or maintaining CAC 2.0, (b) not to disclose the comments
except in confidence to those of their employees or directors who
need to know the same for the aforesaid purpose.
Should the Users by themselves or anyone acting on their behalf fail to
comply with any of the conditions in this agreement (save with the
written consent of the Proprietor) this agreement shall terminate
immediately and CAC 2.0, its copies and derivative works based on it
shall be destroyed at the User's site and at all sites under his
control. Such termination shall be without prejudice to any claim
which the Proprietor may have either for monies due and/or damages
Failure by the Proprietor to exercise or enforce any rights in
this agreement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any such right
nor operate so as to bar the exercise or enforcement thereof at any
time or times thereafter.
This agreement terminates if (a) the User destroys all copies of
CAC 2.0 or any derivative work thereof, (b) the User or its Institution
ceases to exist, unless all its obligations are transferred to a new
entity, which is then considered to be bound by this Agreement. The
User or its successor shall inform the Proprietor about any such
transfer or succession; failure to do so will terminate this
Agreement after one month after such transfer or succession. (c)
the Proprietor ceases to exist without a legal successor.
The Proprietor shall keep the information about the User provided
when submitting this Agreement in confidentiality and will not
disclose it to other parties, except in a summary form such that
individual users will not be identified, unless they specifically
agree to such a disclosure in writing.
This agreement is governed by the laws of the Czech Republic and
all disputes concerning this agreement will be resolved by its
