Upright data notice

Including the Upright data notice

This document contains instructions for including Upright's general data notice in contexts where Upright's customers publish Upright data, or data derived from Upright data.

The general notice applies to all types of impact data produced by Upright, including:

  • Upright net impact metrics

  • SFDR Principal Adverse Impact indicators

  • EU taxonomy alignment and eligibility indicators

  • UN SDG indicators


Notice text

The notice text is as follows:

This report contains impact-related and sustainability-related indicators that are based on data produced by Upright Oy (Upright). Due to the limited availability of underlying information and the nature of the indicators, the produced information intrinsically includes some inaccuracy. Upright continuously seeks to improve the accuracy of its indicators by using the best available information and the best available statistical methods for integrating information from different sources. Upright does not warrant the accuracy of the information, and shall not be liable for any direct or indirect damages related to the information it provides. The information in this report is reproduced by permission from Upright, and may not be redistributed without permission from Upright.

The text can be optionally accompanied by the title "Upright notice".

For a non-English version of the notice, please contact your Upright contact person.

Usage in different contexts

On PDF and printed reports that include Upright data or data derived from Upright data, please include the notice (at least) once. Best practice is to include the notice among other similar notices, usually at the end of the report.

On websites, mobile apps, and other interactive contexts, the notice can be placed freely, as long as it is easily discoverable from pages or views that include Upright data or data derived from Upright data. In these contexts, please exchange the word "report" in the notice text with "website", "application", or other appropriate wording.

Fonts and styling

Colors and text style (i.e. italics) can be adapted to match your organisation's branding. Always use a legible font size and ensure there is sufficient contrast between text and background.

Special use contexts

Contexts including MSCI's standard data disclaimer

Contexts that include an standard disclaimer from MSCI can optionally incorporate Upright into the disclaimer. In this case a separate Upright notice is not required. The necessary amendment is shown in yellow below:

Although YOURORGNAME’s information providers, including without limitation, MSCI ESG Research Inc. and its affiliates, and Upright Oy (the “ESG Parties”), obtain information from sources they consider reliable, none of the ESG Parties warrants or guarantees the originality, accuracy and/or completeness of any data herein. None of the ESG Parties makes any express or implied warranties of any kind, and the ESG Parties hereby expressly disclaim all warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, with respect to any data herein. None of the ESG Parties shall have any liability for any errors or omissions in connection with any data herein. Further, without limiting any of the foregoing, in no event shall any of the ESG Parties have any liability for any direct, indirect, special, punitive, consequential or any other damages (including lost profits) even if notified of the possibility of such damages.

The amendment approach is possible since MSCI's standard disclaimer relates to information providers in general, and is not specific to MSCI.

Other special use contexts

If you have another special use context where you think some adaptation of the notice would be appropriate, please contact your Upright contact person.
