Nutzungsbedingungen / Terms Of Use

Attention: Only the German version of the Terms of Use is binding.

The key points are are:
  • For support reasons, we store your contact data according to our IDM. (Will be anonymized at least 15 months after the cancellation of the HPC login.) The data of the HPC project (incl. contact of project leader) will be kept for further reference. *Our HPC systems may only be used according to the project description.
  • Responsibilities for the project leader:
    • She has to assign a team member with an HPC login as the technical project administrator. She can do this herself if she has a login at our systems.
    • The project leader or the administrator will have to add/remove members to their project. She has access to accounting data for her project.
  • These issues cover the data storage in our systems:
    • Please work in th escratch file systems.
    • Upon request, the project leader or the administrator can be given access to a user's directory.
    • The scratch file systems (/tmp, /scratch, /fastfs, /fasttemp) are for temporary use only. After a certain time, files may be removed automatically (for /tmp after 7 days, parallel scratch: after 100 days).
    • Before a user leaves a project the leader/administrator has to store away worthy data. For this, the storage services of ZIH (long term storage, intermediate archive) can be used.
  • Project termination (new)
    • At project's end, jobs cannot be submitted and started any longer.
    • Logins are valid for 30 more days for saving data.
    • Hundred days after project termination, it's files will be deleted in the HPC file systems.
  • The HPC user agrees to follow the instructions and hints of the support team. In case of non-compliance, she can be disabled for the batch system or banned from the system.
  • Working with logs and HPC performance data (new)
    • For HPC related research ZIH will collect and analyze performance data. Anonymized, it might be shared with research partners.
