* A Data Use Agreement (DUA) is a binding contract between organizations governing the transfer and use of data. DUA terms and conditions vary depending on the laws and regulations governing the particular type of data as well as the policies and/or requirements of the Provider. A DUA must be signed by a Harvard Institutional Signatory.
