DATASTREAMX TERMS OF USE

Last updated: 27 June 2015

DataStreamX.com (the 'Website') is owned and operated by DataStreamX Pte Ltd ('we', 'us' and 'DataStreamX').

On the Website you can browse and buy licenses to data products ('Data Products') from third parties (referred to as 'Vendors') and you can register as a Vendor to sell licenses to Data Products to third parties (referred to as 'Buyers').

These Terms of Use ('Terms of Use') apply to your use of the Website, whether you are browsing, buying or selling licenses. The Terms of Use include the following terms and conditions:

  • If you buy licenses to Data Products (i.e. you are a Buyer), you must also comply with the Buyer Agreement
  • If you sell licenses to Data Products (i.e. you are a Vendor), you must also comply with the Vendor Agreement

Your continued use of the Website constitutes your acceptance of these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to any of the Terms of Use, you must not use, browse, or buy or sell licenses on the Website.

1. DATASTREAMX'S ROLE

DataStreamX is neither the Buyer nor the Vendor of Data Products.

DataStreamX is the platform provider and helps facilitate transactions between the Vendor and the Buyer. DataStreamX provides a venue for Vendors and Buyers to complete transactions. The contract formed at the completion of a sale of a license for a Data Product is solely between the Buyer and the Vendor (referred to as the 'End User License Agreement'). DataStreamX is not a party to the End User License Agreement.

DataStreamX assumes no responsibility arising out of or in connection with the End User License Agreement. DataStreamX is not the Vendor's or the Buyer's agent. The Vendor is responsible for the sale of the license to the Data Product and for dealing with any Buyer claims or any other issue arising out of or in connection with the End User License Agreement between the Buyer and Vendor.

DataStreamX wants Buyers and Vendors to have a safe online experience. Therefore DataStreamX requires Buyers and Vendors to comply with these Terms of Use.
