What are the terms of use for premium databases?

Most premium databases come with several license tiers - single user, startup, institutional and developer.  Please note that terms of use vary depending on the database in question, but in general:

  • Single user licenses allow you to use the data for your own, non-commercial use case.  
  • Startup licenses allow startups to use the data as part of a a new software application you are building.
  • Institutional licenses allow entire organizations to use and share data.  
  • Developer licenses allow incorporation of data into software products.
Terms of Use are available in simple, human-readable form: just click on the green "View Pricing" button on any premium database page. You will then see the licenses available. To view the Terms of Use for each license, hover you over the license tier so that a small popup box appears, then click "Full License" in the popup box.
Please note that, unless explicitly permitted, redistribution of premium data is forbidden.
