restricted data may be accessed at the new place of employment. 27. When other research staff join the project, they shall submit the Supplemental Agreement with Research Staff. Such supplemental agreements shall be submitted in a timely manner but, in any event, prior to granting other research staff access to the data on whatever media in which the data may exist.
Violation of This Agreement
If ICPSR determines that the Agreement may have been violated, ICPSR will inform the Restricted Data Investigator(s) of the allegations in writing and will provide them with an opportunity to respond in writing within 10 days. ICPSR may also, at that time, require immediate return or destruction of all copies of the restricted data in possession of the investigators. Failure to do so will be determined to be a material breach of this agreement and, among other legal remedies, may be subject to injunctive relief by a court of competent jurisdiction. If ICPSR deems the allegations unfounded or incorrect, the data may be returned to the Restricted Data Investigator under the terms of the original agreement. If ICPSR deems the allegations in any part to be correct, ICPSR will determine and apply the appropriate sanction(s).
If ICPSR determines that any aspect of this agreement has been violated, ICPSR may invoke these sanctions as it deems appropriate:
Denial of all future access to restricted data files
Report of the violation to the researcher's institution's office responsible for scientific integrity and misconduct, with a request that the institution's sanctions for misconduct be imposed.
Report of the violation to appropriate federal and private agencies or foundations that fund scientific and public policy research, with a recommendation that all current research funds be terminated, that future funding be denied to the investigator(s) and to all other persons involved in the violation, and that access to other restricted data be denied in the future
Such other remedies that may be available to ICPSR under law or equity, including injunctive relief
I certify that all materials submitted with this application for this restricted data are truthful.
Furthermore, I acknowledge that I am legally bound by covenants and terms of this agreement, and that violation will constitute unethical professional practice and may subject me to the sanctions listed above.
