What is a data license?
A data license is an agreement authorizing the supply of our price data for your internal business use. This ensures compliance with our terms and conditions at all times, as well as improving ease and efficiency of use through the data delivery systems we provide.

Who is it for?
A data license is required if you wish to do the following:

  • Share our price data – a data license permits the extraction of our price data and redistribution to colleagues directly or via your company system.
  • Trade using our price data – a data license permits the use of our price data for trading of physical and financial contracts where the data is the underlying reference.
  • Reference our price data – a data licensee permits the use of our price data for valuation, pricing activities or as a reference in transactions.

Examples of referencing our price data (but not limited to):

  • Physical supply or sales contracts 
  • Bi-lateral OTC contracts, valuations of funds, holdings, inventories
  • Forward curves

Derived data – a data license is also required for the creation and use of information derived from our price data. Examples of derived data activities include (but not limited to):

Why do I need a data license?
Our price data represents the most important part of our service offering. We want to make the process of using our price data more transparent so you can be at ease, knowing you and your organization are following all compliance procedures.
