While CNF supports a variety of proprietary research, CNF is not, in general, set up for confidential or export controlled research. CNF is under no obligation to participate under these restrictions.
On a case by case basis and with the approval of Cornell's Export Control Office, CNF may work with researchers to temporarily set up an export controls compliant environment for computing and/or tool usage. CNF will rebill additional staff time accrued. Consideration will include time during which CNF tools and/or computing resources are unavailable to the rest of the CNF research community due to the open access nature of the CNF facility.
Each Party acknowledges that they are subject to U.S. export control laws and regulations (collectively, "Export Control Laws"), which include (without limitation) the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and regulations and orders administered by the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC Regulations"). Each Party agrees to comply with all Export Control Laws. Users shall not disclose to Cornell University any technology or technical data subject to Export Control Laws unless and until a plan for the transfer, use, dissemination, and control of the information has been approved in writing by Cornell's Export Control and Compliance Officer. For purposes of this paragraph, "disclose" shall include bringing controlled technology or technical data onto Cornell's premises.
