Ordnance Survey licensing terms

You will need to contact Ordnance Survey on for the relevant licence conditions if you need to:

  1. Use the co-ordinate information for a purpose other than personal, non-commercial use or commercial or non-commercial use within your organisation; or
  2. Sub-license, distribute, sell or make available the co-ordinate information to third parties.

By way of clarification of the preceding paragraphs numbered 1 and 2, the “purpose.. (of)… commercial use within your organisation”:

  • Permits using the co-ordinate information solely for the internal administration and operation of your business (referred to as “Business Use” (and formerly “Internal Business Use”) in OS standard licence terms); and
  • Does not permit using the co-ordinate information for the purpose of creating or developing any product or service intended for sub-licensing, distribution or sale to third parties (notwithstanding that the co-ordinate information itself may not actually be supplied as part of such product or service).

Therefore if you create any data which has benefited from, relied on or made use of the co-ordinate information, you are not permitted to sub-license, distribute or sell such data to third parties under the above terms.

Separate licence conditions are required for activities described under the second of the above bullet points. For Ordnance Survey’s licence conditions, contact Ordnance Survey on
