position that factual information is not covered by copyright. The DbCL
grants you permission for any information having copyright contained in
the Contents.
### 3.0 Warranties, disclaimer, and limitation of liability
3.1 The Contents are licensed by the Licensor "as is" and without any
warranty of any kind, either express or implied, whether of title, of
accuracy, of the presence of absence of errors, of fitness for purpose,
or otherwise. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied
warranties, so this exclusion may not apply to You.

the Licensor is not liable for, and expressly excludes, all liability
for loss or damage however and whenever caused to anyone by any use
under this License, whether by You or by anyone else, and whether caused

## Processing
This table is generated using calculate.pl on an otherwise complete dataset SQLite file - the output of this script is then used to alter the original (and not very useful, because not integrated) upid table in that very dataset. In other words: whenever any changes or additions happen to the dataset that concerns ID matching and integration, this script has to be run afterwards, and its output upid.sql incorporated into the table. If you are just downloading the whole dataset, though, this comes with the current version of upid.sql, which is automatically run at the right place by combined.sql. So you should be fine...

What this means in the case of ID tables such as this one is basically: the names of electoral precincts and the like can be used without restrictions, but if you rely on the cross-year and cross-ID matching that this table is meant to facilitate, you are bound by the ODbL attribution and share alike provisions.
