File donation is a data retention option available to you if the dataset you are working with is either public or, if it is private, you have the authority to donate it to us. If you donate a file, it should not contain personal or sensitive information.
This option means that users such as students, researchers, journalists and small manufacturers are given a discount when they place an order.
Once a file is donated to us, it becomes our property. We may choose to use it for any purpose, or we may choose to delete it. We will send you an email acknowledging the donation and we do keep a record of each donation. Your name and organization will be associated with the dataset and we may publicly credit the donated dataset to you and your organization.
