These Terms of Use govern your access to and use of Statsomat.com and the offered online services, the “apps”. Owner of Statsomat.com and the linked “apps” is  Denise Welsch. These Terms of Use limit Statsomat.com liability and obligations to you and impose certain obligations on you and provide you with other important information with respect to the provision and use of the website and the online services, the “apps”.

The “apps” offered by Statsomat.com enable users to upload data in form of CSV files and to download automatically generated reports in form of a PDF file. The “apps” are in an experimental beta modus. We do no guarantee the 100% availability of the services. The services respectively the number of concomitant users per app are limited by technical restrictions. You are not allowed to use the “apps” for any illegal purpose, or in violation of any laws (including without limitation data, privacy, and export control laws).

The report

The report generated by an app can but does not have to include the following items:

  • Statistical, numerical outputs and graphics for an uploaded data based on the R programming language
  • R programming code
  • Interpretation of statistical analysis in words
  • Description of applied statistical methods or R packages and functions
  • References

The content of the report is generated by using the R programming language. R is a free software and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. Consequently, the Statsomat.com “apps” and the generated PDF reports come with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. Statsomat.com liability is limited by the usage of the R programming language. Nevertheless, Statsomat.com assures that the content of the report shall be generated in a highly professional manner and in accordance with the industry standards.

Numerical results contained in the downloadable report may differ from those which you generate locally, since execution takes place in different technical environments. In some cases, results are not reproducible from session to session because of different seeds for random generators.

There may exist dataset cases for which the apps do not deliver any report (if the sample size is too small or other app conditions are not satisfied etc.)

The automatic computation and interpretation delivered by the Statsomat apps should not completely replace the classical, made by humans graphical exploratory data analysis and statistical analysis. There may be data cases for which the Statsomat does not deliver the most optimal solution or output interpretation.

The uploaded data

Only data prepared as described in the instructions of the “apps” and uploaded will enable meaningful statistical outputs. We do not guarantee that the “apps” will identify and represent your language i.e. characters of your data correctly in the report. Currently supported languages for some apps are mainly Latin, Greek and Cyrillic and are limited by the fira sans.

License of the R code

In the report included R programming code, the “Software” is under the MIT license.
