Individual User Database Licence


Please note that this document is currently awaiting an update for the GDPR. In the meantime, new GDPR-ready standard clauses for data protection and data processing are available in our GDPR & Data Protection Group.

This Individual User Database Licence is designed to govern the use by an individual user of a computerised database or a particular section of such a database.

This is particularly suited to situations where a small business or sole trader wishes to acquire a relatively simple set of data for use in their business such as mailing lists and other essential marketing data. Additional licenses governing more complex databases and permitting multiple and networked users are also available.

This is a non-exclusive licence, meaning that the owner or provider of the database can issue as many copies of the database and / or permit access under this licence to as many individuals as it wishes. The licence is also non-transferable meaning that the user may not pass on the benefit of the licence to another and in so doing, deny the provider paying customers.

Please note that this licence is for a database per se, not a database software package. For such applications a software licence is required.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
