Terms of website use
Other applicable terms
Changes to these terms
Changes to our website
We may update our website from time to time, and may change the functionality or content at any time. The data provided through the website is derived from multiple third-party sources and we give no warranties that the data is up to date nor are we under any obligation to update it. We do not guarantee that our website, or any content on it, will be free from errors or omissions.
Accessing our website
Our website is made available on a subscription basis. While we will endeavour to maintain a high degree of availability, we do not guarantee that our website, or any content on it, will always be available or be uninterrupted. We may suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of our website without notice. We will not be liable to you if for any reason our website is unavailable at any time or for any period.
Accessing our website using any kind of automated script, scraper or robot is strictly forbidden, other than via our API in the ways authorised by these terms.
If you choose to sign up to a 14-day free trial on our website, you must enter credit/debit card details. These will be held securely by our payment partner, Stripe.
When you sign up you can choose between a monthly or annual subscription period.
At the start of your free trial you will select a price plan to trial. During your free trial you can change your price plan at any time, or cancel your trial at any time in your account area, or by notifying us by email.
Free trials are strictly limited to one per person. Once you have used your PropertyData free trial, you must pay for a subscription if you would like to use PropertyData further. No person may set up multiple trials using different email addresses.
Automatic subscription start
We will send an email reminder to you close to the end of the 14-day trial period.
If, at the expiry of your free trial period exactly 14 days after starting it, you have not cancelled your trial, a paid subscription will automatically start and we will charge your stored card for your first billing period.
Automatic subscription renewal
Your subscription will renew automatically at the end of each billing period, in the absence of action by you. We will charge your stored card and a successful payment will extend your subscription by one billing period.
We will not send users on a monthly subscription a reminder before each monthly renewal. We will send users on an annual subscription an email reminder a few days before their subscription renews.
Failed subscription charges
If our attempt to charge your card under these terms & conditions is declined by your bank, your account will be suspended and we will notify you by email. We will try up to four further times over the following days to charge your card, before ceasing to attempt charges.
All PropertyData subscriptions are 'rolling' with a minimum contract period of just one billing period (either month or year), which is renewed upon each successful charge.
You can cancel your subscription at any time in your account area, or by notifying us by email. If you cancel, you will be able to use your account until the end of the current paid-for billing period. No refund will be due for the remaining unused time.
In certain circumstances we may offer discount codes on signup, which may offer a discounted first month or ongoing price. All discount codes will have an expiry date and cannot be used to sign up after this date.
When we raise prices for new subscribers, we will usually allow existing subscribers to keep the price that they signed up at (known as 'grandfathering'). An unbroken subscription must be maintained to keep this 'grandfather rate' discount active on your account. We consider a subscription broken if it lapses for 7 days or more. Grandfathering is strictly at our discretion and not guaranteed to be offered to new subscribers in the future, or continued for subscribers who are currently enjoying it.
Fair usage policy
Users agree to be bound by our fair usage policy which ensures fair access to the PropertyData platform for all users.
Account sharing and additional users
PropertyData accounts are designed to be used only by a single individual. Account sharing is strictly prohibited.
Subscribers to the 'Max' plan may add 'additional users' for an additional cost of £16 per additional user per month.
Your account and password
If you disagree with a charge we have made to your stored credit/debit card, please contact us as soon as possible.
We guarantee absolutely to refund any charge if you request it within 10 days of the charge being made.
We may in our absolute discretion refund charges up to 60 days after they are made if you can demonstrate exceptional reasons why we should do so.
API - Confidentiality of key
If you subscribe to a PropertyData API account and create an API key, the privacy and security of your API key is your responsibility at all times. Although our API supports CORS, exposing your API key in publicly-readable source code is not recommended. You remain responsible for any and all calls made to the API using your key. You can regenerate your API key from your account area at any time, if you feel your API key may have been compromised or for any other reason.
API - Acceptable uses
You may use data retrieved from our API as you see fit in commercial or non-commercial applications, in any situation where our data is complementary to the primary function of your product or service.
You may not resell data retrieved from our API; in other words you must not offer a product or service where our data forms a very significant part of the value proposition, and the product or service would be significantly impaired if our data were removed. It is ultimately at our sole discretion to determine whether your use of the API constitutes reselling.
Reselling data is possible, but you must contact us to agree bespoke commercial terms. For example, we may ask that your end-users must register for their own PropertyData API key (consider becoming an affiliate to receive a proportion of lifetime revenue from your end-users).
If you are a paying API subscriber of PropertyData attribution of the data source is not required (but is always appreciated!).
API - Free trial period
The 14-day free trial for an API account allows you to develop with the API key and test in a development or staging environment. The API key should not go live in a public or production environment during the free trial. Should you be ready to go live with your API implementation within the 14-day free trial period, you can ask us to accelerate your first billing period.
API - Caching and throttling
You may cache data retrieved from our API for performance purposes up to a maximum of 60 days from the point of retrieval.
You agree to throttle your API requests to a maximum of one request within any two second period, in order to prevent unnecessary load on our servers.
Refer a friend scheme
For every user you refer to PropertyData, you (the referer) and the referred user will each receive £75 account credit.
If the referred user starts a monthly subscription, the credit will be issued to the referrer and referred user when the referred user makes their third payment.
If the referred user starts an annual subscription, the credit will be available for the referred user to use towards their first subscription payment, and when this payment has been successfully charged the referrer will receive their credit.
To prevent abuse of the scheme, if the referrer's subscription is no longer active at the time the referal credit would be paid, neither the referrer or the referred user will receive any credit.
We reserve the right the withdraw the referral credit if we believe the referral system has not been used in good faith.
The refer a friend scheme cannot be used in conjunction with the affiliate program or any other discount code. If a referred user also uses an affiliate link or discount code, this will override the refer a friend scheme and no credit will be awarded to either referrer or referred user.
Account credit can be earned using the refer a friend scheme, and may also be offered for other reasons from time-to-time at our discretion, for example finding a website or bug or participating in a review program.
You can see your account credit balance on the website in your Account area. If you have a positive account credit balance, it will be automatically offset against up to 50% of each automatic subscription payment until it runs out.
Account credit cannot be used against one-off payments, such as plan upgrades or account reactivations.
Account credit is not usable in any way other than described above, and is not redeemable for cash.
