Terms and Conditions
The EORTC QLG has two policies for the use of the QLQ-C30 and associated modules:
- Commercial users – Fee based user agreement
- Academic Users – non Fee based academic user agreement
What qualifies as a Commercial user?
If an organization, institution or company is being provided with or providing funds, sponsorship or a grant for their research, and should any of these gain financially or use the measures for commercial purposes, then a fee is chargeable.
If data is to be available to the funding pharma prior to publication of results, or if the funding pharma have a say in the study design, then a fee is chargeable.
What qualifies as an Academic User?
If an organization, institution, hospital or non-profit is using the measures without the intent of making a profit or having a third party profit from the data and that the research is being conducted without direct or indirect sponsorship or support from pharmaceutical, medical appliance or related, for-profit health care industries then we would classify this as an academic user and no fee would be charged.
Educational grants are allowed on a case to case basis.
