CAS Information Use Policies - Part 3


All of the following uses are prohibited without prior written permission from CAS:

a. A User may not disseminate, distribute, copy, or store any portion of the CA Lexicon, without the prior written consent of CAS. The CA Lexicon is the copyrighted intellectual property of the American Chemical Society and is provided to assist in searching Databases on STN.

b. A User may not copy or otherwise record all or portions of a printed issue or Database with the purpose of, or the effect of, avoiding subscription fees or use charges for that publication or Database, except as provided in these Policies. This includes the creation of centralized or networked Databases or directories of CAS information.

c. A User may not use CAS Records or Metadata with non-CAS or non-STN tools with the exception of standard office software such as Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.

d. A User may not redistribute any part of CAS Records or any CAS Data Elements outside the Organization via the Internet or other means except as specified in these Policies.

e. A government agency which receives legally required CAS information from a User may not share, exchange, or redistribute this information to another Organization, including another government agency.



A User may also contact CAS to discuss special permission. Typical uses that may be permitted, upon agreement, are the following:

1. One-time or periodic publication of CAS information in bulletins, bibliographies, and other documents, either for distribution outside the User's organization or within the organization if the use exceeds what is described in these Policies.

2. Licensing of more than 10,000 CASRNs or use of any CAS information other than what is permitted in these Policies.

3. If current or planned use of CAS information goes beyond what is described in Section III of these Policies, please refer to the STN Information Keep & Share Program. For example, An Information Professional may pay to store backup copies for a longer period or a User may pay for the right to retain more records or to redistribute them more widely within his or her organization with STN Keep and Share. CAS Customer Care will assist Users who do not have access to STN with their needs for extended use or retention of records.
