Starting with this version, publishers are required to assign one of three machine-readable rights declarations to their data. If you cannot agree to publish your data under a CC0 1.0, CC-BY 4.0 or CC-BY-NC 4.0 declaration, we recommend that you continue to use the previous version of the IPT for now.
GBIF will begin working with existing publishers to implement and enforce this requirement across the network during 2015. If you are unable to choose one of the three options, you will not be able to register your dataset with GBIF or make it globally discoverable through GBIF.org.

I have read and understood the disclaimer
To use the IPT you must select a directory where the IPT will store its configuration information - called the IPT data directory.
Please select an empty, writable folder or an existing IPT data directory. Do not select a folder that is vulnerable to other processes, such as /tmp, which may be emptied on a system restart. This folder should be backed up regularly in keeping with a disaster recovery plan.
For example, use a path such as "C:\datadir" for Windows environments or "/usr/datadir" for Unix-like environments such as Linux, Mac OS X.
