What is a data licence?
A data licence is an agreement authorising 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 licence is required if you wish to do the following:

Share our price data – a data licence permits the extraction of our price data and redistribution to colleagues directly or via your company system.

Trade using our price data – a data licence 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 licence 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

Derived data – a data licence 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):
• Indices, forward curves, spread bets, swaps, swaptions
• Exchange Traded Products (including futures, forwards, options, ETFs, ETCs, ETNs)
• Contracts for Difference (CFDs)

Why do I need a data licence?
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 organisation are following all compliance procedures.

In response to the growing adoption of our price data by companies in the metals value chain, we offer data licences as the solution to receive and use our prices for key functions in sales and trading, as well as, mid and back office operations that also interact with price data.
