If you accept the agreement, your thesis will be freely available online and appears, for example, in Google search results.

Make sure that you have followed good reference practices and have not included copyrighted material without the author's permission.

If you have collaborated with some enterprise or organization in writing your thesis, please contact their representative/s before publishing your work online.
