Terms of use

Attention: This translation is for your information only - only the version in German is valid. On this website, the Swiss Text Corpus (CHTK) offers you the possibility to linguistically search Swiss texts from the 20th century for scientific and private purposes. The data that has been processed by the CHTK for linguistic search may never be used for any commercial purposes. CHTK therefore asks users to personally register via an electronic form where an explicit approval of these terms of use has to be given. Authentication and the approval of the terms of use can be requested for every session.

With your registration you consent to the storage and processing of your registration data according to Swiss legislation on data protection. They only serve as a measure for the identification of misuse. A transfer of your login data to a third party is excluded. Withdrawal is possible anytime through simple notice to CHTK. CHTK reserves the right to modify or supplement the data provided anytime without further notice.

  1. The data provided to you by CHTK for research purposes may not be published as a whole neither directly nor indirectly, nor may it be broadcast or distributed in any medium.
  2. Neither the complete text corpus nor parts of it exceeding the size of a key word with context may be archived permanently in any form (neither printed nor electronically).
  3. You may use the data you gain access to for purely scientific or private purposes. Any commercial use is prohibited. This prohibition of commercial use of CHTK data includes in particular the processing of the data in order to use them commercially by yourself or by a third party.
