This includes, but is not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to the NLM data, and NLM specifically disclaims any such warranties and representations. In the current version of PsyGeNET database a static version of the MEDLINE®/PubMed® data downloaded on the February 25th 2014, is integrated. Therefore, be aware that the PsyGeNET database do not reflect the most current biomedical/scientific data available from NLM.
NLM databases are produced by a U.S. Government agency and as such are not protected by US copyright laws. Use of the databases outside the United States may be governed by applicable foreign copyright laws.
NLM assumes no responsibility or liability associated with use of copyrighted material, including transmitting, reproducing, redistributing, or making commercial use of the data.

Persons contemplating any type of transmission or reproduction of copyrighted material such as abstracts are advised to consult legal counsel.
All complete or parts of NLM-derived records that are redistributed or retransmitted must be identified as being derived from NLM databases. Examples are: "From MEDLINE®/PubMed®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine." and "MeSH Headings from MEDLINE®/PubMed®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine."
Some material in the NLM databases derives from copyrighted publications. Publishers and/or authors often claim copyright on the abstracts in MEDLINE®/PubMed®. Refer to the publication data appearing in the citations, as well as to the copyright notices appearing in the original publications, all of which are hereby incorporated by reference.

UMLS® Metathesaurus® data is used under the terms of the UMLS® Metathesaurus® license.
UMLS: UMLS® or Unified Medical Language System®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, is a set of files and software that brings together many health and biomedical vocabularies and standards to enable interoperability between computer systems.
NLM: NLM or the U.S. National Library of Medicine represents that its data were formulated with a reasonable standard of care. Except for this representation, NLM makes no representation or warranties, expressed or implied. This includes, but is not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to the NLM data, and NLM specifically disclaims any such warranties and representations.
NCBI Gene: NCBI Gene, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, integrates information from a wide range of species. A record may include nomenclature, Reference Sequences (RefSeqs), maps, pathways, variations, phenotypes, and links to genome-, phenotype-, and locus-specific resources worldwide.
MEDLINE: Gene-disease associations and sentences shown in the PsyGeNET Web interface services are from MEDLINE®/PubMed®, a database of NLM or the U.S. National Library of Medicine. MEDLINE® is the NLM premier bibliographic database that contains journal citations and abstracts for biomedical literature from around the world. PubMed® provides free access to MEDLINE® and links to full text articles when possible. A proportion of the human gene-disease associations contained in PsyGeNET were derived from MEDLINE®, by means of text mining approaches MEDLINE(BeFree System).
