7.1 Your status as a user of the DAE requires your organisation to enter into a DSFC and a DSA with us, and then to receive our confirmation as to your status, which we may give or remove at any time at our discretion for any reason. Your organisation must then also authorise you to access the DAE.

7.2. As further set out in the relevant DSA, you recognise that we may on occasion need to recall and resupply data.

7.3. Our assumption is that your access to the DAE will be from within England, and we are not responsible or liable for your compliance with any local laws, should you seek to access the DAE outside of England. We may limit the availability of the DAE to any person or geographic area at any time at our discretion.

7.4. You recognise that the DAE is a service with other users, and that access or capacity may on occasion be limited. You will comply with any guidance as to fair use that may be given by us from time to time. You recognise that we may need to suspend or throttle usage that is in excess of fair usage at our discretion or where we consider it may impact other users.

7.5. You may only use and save data from the DAE within the DAE, unless we have provided you with permission to download, use, and save that particular data in a secured location outside of the DAE as set out in the applicable DSA. This permission may be granted or withdrawn in accordance with that DSA.

7.6. Uploading your own content to the DAE is only permitted where this is set out and agreed in the applicable DSA.

7.7. Your use of any of the third-party tools available within the DAE may require you to agree to additional terms and conditions in relation to that particular third-party tool before it may be used. Further, your use of any third-party tool will also at all times be subject to: (i) us making that third-party tool available to you; (ii) any controls and/or reasonable use restrictions which we put in place; (iii) the end-user obligations set out in Appendix A; and (v) the terms of the applicable DSA. The availability of any third-party tool will be solely at our discretion.

8. Accessibility and browsers

8.1 We aim to make the DAE accessible (subject to the controls) and comply with standards which should work on the majority of browsers in use. However, we offer no warranty for the DAE working in any particular browser or configuration. Please note that you may see inconsistencies in the presentation of pages if you are using an older or deprecated version of a browser, or the DAE may not work at all.

9. Registration, login and security

9.1 In order to use the DAE and/or access certain content, systems, or features of the DAE, your organisation will first need to identify you as an authorised user in relation to the applicable DSA.

You may be asked to provide additional information as required as part of our security procedures.
