Data Access Policy
All tags are provided free of charge by the Southwest Monarch Study (SWMS). The cost of tags is covered
solely by donations to SWMS. SWMS gathers and stores all data on where and when these tags were deployed and recovered.
SWMS owns these data and controls access to them until such time as they are published or otherwise made publicly
available by SWMS. At that point, they will be placed in a publicly-accessible data repository. This data ownership
policy aligns with data ownership practices in other Citizen Science research programs.
