  1. Public level: data uploaded as “public” can be freely browsed, viewed, downloaded, used, shared and adapted by everyone, with no restrictions for their use. Public data in the registry can be copied, distributed, displayed and published in original ore adapted form by anybody as long as credit is given to the original source.

  2. Restricted level: data uploaded as restricted can be copied, distributed, displayed or can be used for work in its original form, included for commercial purposes. Publication and distribution of the adapted and remixed data is not allowed. Data can be viewed or downloaded only by other RIS-ALiCE registered users. Such license is represented by the symbol presented in Figure (b).
  3. Entry without chemical, mineralogical or other parameters: In the case chemical, mineralogical or any detailed information of the material composition are not known, or cannot be revealed, data provider may only indicate that certain waste material is available. This information will be visible for all registry visitors.

User management

RIS-ALiCE registry has defined 4 user levels to follow the data IPR policy. Each user level has its own permissions and responsibilities:

  1. Registry administrator: The key role of the registry administrator is to validate whether a request for company registration arrives from an actual company, belonging to the key target stakeholder groups (waste producers, waste transportation sector, potential waste consumers, research organisations, relevant industrial associations, governmental bodies and similar). This will be done either by checking the company web page, by phone, email or by some other means of validation. If the validation process is successful, he/she confirms the Company administrator. The Registry administrator also has the possibility to moderate comments and user’s feedback section, while he/she cannot change the data within the registry.
  2. Company administrator: He/she is the main representative of the company registered in the registry. Company administrator is the person, who register the company for the first time by clicking the Register company button on the upper right corner. After a successful registration he/she can enter, modify and remove data in the registry but only those associated with the company he/she represents. In this way each company has complete control over their data. Furthermore he/she can access the data of public and restricted level and can provide comments on the specific registry entries. Company administrator can also assign (or remove) registered end-users users for his/her company.
  3. Registered user: Registered end-user can access the data of public and restricted level, can provide comments on the specific registry entries, can add new data, which is associated to the company he/she is representing, and can modify or remove data, which has been submitted on behalf of this company in the past. Individual registered users can be assigned by company administrators by clicking on the Welcome button at the upper right corner.
  4. Visitor: vvisitor is a random visitor of the RIS-ALiCE registry page, who can access the data in public level, can provide comments on the web portal, and can apply for the registration.
