Licensed partners can obtain digital map data from Ordnance Survey for inclusion within their own products and/or services and/or for onward distribution/resale under the terms of the Framework Contract (Partners) (FCP).
The FCP is the umbrella agreement which outlines the commercial relationship between Ordnance Survey and the licensed partner. A number of Contracts (including the Navigation, Consumer Applications & Websites Contract) sit under the FCP which provide specific terms related to the activity being conducted.
For your reference below is a brief description of activities covered specifically by the terms of the Navigation, Consumer Applications & Websites Contract. Please note the information below is a summary and therefore not exhaustive, you should always refer to the Navigation, Consumer Applications & Websites Contract for full details.
Under the Navigation, Consumer Applications & Websites Contract, Ordnance Survey grants you a licence to provide consumer services for internet and mobile devices via an on demand service or software package using Ordnance Survey Data. This includes route planning, analysis and navigation, but does not extend to tracking services. Ordnance Survey Data can be licensed on subscription, session, perpetual or lifetime basis.
Examples of how you can use Ordnance Survey Data under the Navigation, Consumer Applications & Websites Contract are as follows:
- as part of an internet service (hosted by you) allowing consumers to view mapping for personal use, such as a route planner or where’s my nearest?
- within a satellite navigation system with real time turn by turn instructions
- within a mobile phone application; and
- within a handheld GPS
The geographical position of a navigation device may only be used by the end-user and the licensed partner (but only to the extent necessary to enable the end-user to use the product/service). Tracking is prohibited.
Leisure products may be used on no more than one device concurrently and on no more than five devices in total
