What's the license of MIMIC-III, if any?

I could only find the MIMIC II Clinical Database Restricted Data Use Agreement, which I copy below:

If I am granted access to the MIMIC II Clinical Database, I agree to the terms and conditions below:

  1. I will not attempt to identify any individual referenced in restricted data from PhysioNet.

  2. I will exercise all reasonable and prudent care to avoid disclosure of the identity of any individual referenced in restricted data from PhysioNet in any publication or other communication.

  3. I will not share access to restricted data from PhysioNet with anyone else.

  4. I will exercise all reasonable and prudent care to maintain the physical and electronic security of restricted data from PhysioNet.

  5. If I find information within restricted data from PhysioNet that I believe might permit identification of any individual, I will report the location of this information promptly by email to
    mimic-support@physionet.org, citing the location of the specific information in question so that it can be investigated and removed if necessary.

  6. I have requested access to restricted data from PhysioNet for the sole purpose of lawful use in scientific research, and I will use my privilege of access, if it is granted, for this purpose and no other.

  7. I have completed a training program in human research subjects protections and I am submitting proof of having done so.

  8. This agreement may be terminated by either party at any time, but my obligations with respect to restricted data from PhysioNet shall continue after termination.
