Your personal details

To help identify and administer your account with DMP OPIDoR, we need to store specific user information: email address, surname, first name, home institution, ORCID, last login. We may also use it to inform you of the latest developments of the tool, maintenance and security issues. We will not sell, rent, deliver or trade any personal information you provide us with.

This site contains personal data about DMP OPIDoR’s users and has been registered with the French Data Protection Authority, the CIL-CNRS (record number : 2-16052).

According to the law n° 78-17 of January 6, 1978 'Informatique et Libertés/software and freedoms' (articles 38, 39 and 40), you have the right to access the information as well as to rectify and delete data on this site that concerns you personally.

To exercise this right, please contact us at info-opidor@inist.fr

Data from an unused account (as a result of non-use of the service by the user) will be systematically anonymized within the 5 years following the last connection and you will no longer have access to the application and consequently to your data management plans.

Moreover, authorized officers of your home institution (CNRS or other research organizations) have access to your email address, your surname/first name, last logged in and how many data management plans you have created. It is up to these officers to make use of this information in accordance with regulations in force and recommendations of the CNIL.

Privacy policy

The information you enter into this system can be seen by you, people you have chosen to share access with, and - solely for the purposes of maintaining the service - system administrators of the CNRS. We will not directly access, make use of, or share your data management plans content with anyone else without your permission.

Intellectual property

The DMP OPIDoR tool is built with an open source software called DMPonline, which is developed by the UK’s Digital Curation Centre (DCC) and is made available under a GNU Affero General Public License. We will share the source code of our modified version on GitHub under the same license.


The CNRS cannot in any way be held liable for any damage, no matter the nature, resulting from the interpretation or use of information and/or documents available on this site.

The host can interrupt access to the site at any time, without prior notice, in the event of a security issue.


The creation of hyperlinks by third parties to pages or documents in the CNRS website is permitted provided that the links are not contrary to the interests of the CNRS, and that they ensure the possibility for the user to identify the origin and author.

Cookies and statistics

To adapt our site to the users' needs, we measure the number of visits, page views, visitors' activity and return frequency.

Piwik, the statistics tool used by the Inist-CNRS generates a cookie with a unique ID, whose storage is limited to 13 months.

We also collect your IP address to identify your geographical location, which is then immediately anonymized and cannot be used by the Inist-CNRS to trace a physical person.

The information collected is not disclosed to third parties nor used for other purposes.

Your browser can be configured to notify you of the cookies stored on your computer and to ask you to accept them or not. You can accept or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis or choose to systematically reject them. Remember that changing settings may modify your access conditions to our services which require the use of cookies.

Each browser has a different cookies configuration. This configuration is mostly described in your browser's help menu.

Law applicable

The site is governed by French legislation, no matter where the website is used. In the event of potential disputes and following failed attempts to find an amicable solution, the French courts alone shall handle the dispute.

If you have any comments or queries about our terms of use, please do not hesitate to contact us, e.g. by sending an email to info-opidor@inist.fr.

Changes to the terms of use

The CNRS reserves the right to modify at any time the present terms of use to adapt to the changing of the site and/or its holding.

Users will be provided with information on such modifications on the home page. If users do not agree with the new terms of use, they will be able to close their accounts.
