The services provided by the RunMyCode website (collectively the "Services") are:

(i) to allow researchers (the “RunMyCoders”) to create companion websites associated with their scientific publications (articles and working papers). A companion website is a website allowing people to access the code and/or data associated with a scientific publication;

(ii) to allow users (the “Users”) to download researchers’ code and/or data their companion websites.
