Conditions of use of the Digital Herbarium

  • Responsibility: Neither the Real Jardín Botánico nor its curators take any responsibility for the accuracy, reliability or completeness of the data, nor for the use made of them.
  • Commercial use of the data: Commercial or other use of the data obtained for profit without the express consent of the Real Jardín Botánico is prohibited. 
  • Redistribution: The publication, reproduction, redistribution of the information, adding to it or subtracting from it, in whole or in part, expressly including its inclusion in other databases, whether free or restricted access, is strictly prohibited.
  • Acknowledgements: Using the data entails the obligation to explicitly acknowledge and cite its use (see "How to cite this resource"). This attribution must be maintained in any subsequent use of the data.
  • Information obtained: users undertake that the information obtained will not be used in detriment to the conservation of flora and fauna, or in any processes that irreversibly alter the ecological balance (indiscriminate extraction or reduction of species).
  • Use of negative information: lbiodiversity data generally report the presence of species; however, the absence of data on a species at a particular location should not be interpreted as implying that it is not found there. Biological sampling is normally irregular, incomplete or influenced by factors external to the object of the sampling. It is essential to take this fact into account in order to use the data appropriately.

The Real Jardín Botánico, and its parent organisation the CSIC, reserve the right to take legal action against any persons infringing these conditions of use.
