Terms of Use

Your affirmative act of using our website located at b2bhint.com (and all associated sites linked to it) or services ("B2BHint") signifies that you agree to the following terms and conditions of use ("Terms of Use"). If you do not agree, do not use B2BHint ("us", "we" or "our").

1. Changes to the terms of use

We may change these Terms of Use at any time. If you continue to use B2BHint after we post changes to these Terms of Use, you are signifying your acceptance of the new terms. You will always have access to our Terms of Use and will be able to check it at any time. By reloading this page, you will have the most up-to-date version available.

2. Changes to B2BHint

We may discontinue or change any service or feature on B2BHint at any time without notice. We do not guarantee backward compatibility of our services and Application Programming Interface (API) in this case.

3. The B2BHint database

p4.1 Open Database License.

We get information into our database from government and other sources in a variety of ways, including: directly from government sites and APIs, from publicly available data sets or through Freedom of Information requests. We spend a lot of time, effort and even money to get this data and turn it into a workable and usable resource.

We do not claim any rights to the information we receive from government sources, and we attribute them whenever possible. This is known as "Contents" in the ODbL license.

We do however claim rights over our database with this information.

The ODbL requires you to attribute your use of our database. This is important as it allows us (and in turn the community) to benefit from reuse of our work, and so allows us to continue to provide this service. Use of any data must be accompanied by a hyperlink reading "from B2BHint" and linking to either the B2BHint homepage or the page referring to the information in question.

The attribution must be large and clear enough to be clearly associated with the usage, and must in all cases be no smaller than 70% of the largest font relating to the information or 7px , whichever is the larger. If the information from B2BHint forms the substantial part of the web-page, you should use the rel-canonical tag to indicate to search engines that the B2BHint page for the company is the core page for this topic (otherwise open data websites risk getting into SEO battles).

Citing us in a report or mentioning the source in a newspaper article you write directly supports our work and allows us to create an even greater product.

The ODbL also requires you to share any improvements you make to our databases under the ODbL as well. For example, if you combine the information with your own data, the resultant information must be published under the Attribution Share-Alike ODbL. This means that the whole community can benefit from both of our work on the database.

If you have a paid contract to use B2BHint, these restrictions do not apply.

4. Redistribution of data

You may not use any data mining, robots or similar data gathering and extraction tools on the B2BHint content, sublicense, assign, transfer, sell, loan, or otherwise distribute for payment the B2BHint content without our prior written consent. You may not circumvent any mechanisms included in the B2BHint content for preventing the unauthorized reproduction or distribution of the B2BHint content. For additional information on commercial and partnership inquiries with us, please see the p13.1

Except as otherwise expressly permitted by the preceding paragraph, you agree not to sell any of the services or materials in any manner or for any purposes, without the prior expressed written consent of B2BHint. In addition, you shall not, without the prior expressed written consent of B2BHint, make copies of any of the software or documentation that may be provided, electronically or otherwise, including, but not limited to, translating, decompiling, disassembling or creating derivative works.

Except as otherwise expressly permitted by additional agreement, we do not permit commercial usage of any of our services or APIs.
