ORDA Takedown Notice


To request the removal, or takedown, of an item from our research data repository, ORDA, either as the item’s author or if you believe that its content infringes UK law, please email rdm@sheffield.ac.uk, including the URL of the record and the reason for the takedown request.

Your request will be acknowledged and an initial assessment will be undertaken by University of Sheffield Library staff. We aim to acknowledge and assess the request within seven working days of receipt. 

If the takedown request is approved, the material will be withdrawn from the repository, either permanently or for an agreed period. A record giving information about the item may remain visible in the repository. This will be decided on a case-by-case basis.

It may be necessary for legal advice to be taken before the issue can be fully resolved.

If your takedown request relates to materials held on White Rose Repository Online or White Rose eTheses Online please see the relevant White Rose takedown pages https://eprints.whiterose.ac.uk/takedown.html
