The data are available with all the necessary details to do science with them. They contain :

MJD or JD (raw or light-travel time corrected if desired)
Magnitude (apparent or absolute, as desired)
Sigma magnitude
Phase angle, if desired
The information concerning the telescope(s) and the observer(s)

The astronomers who download the data and use them for scientific papers must mention the name of the observer(s) and the paper in which these data were published first, if any. We would also appreciate that you mention this database.
