Introduction

Access to FTSE Media

It is your responsibility to ensure your computer or mobile device meets all the necessary technical specifications to enable you to access and use the FTSE Media. Apple Applications and Android Applications are only licensed for use on a device owned or controlled by you and using the Apple iPhone OS or Android OS (as applicable) so you must make sure that you use an appropriate device to access and use any Apple Application or Android Application. Other Applications may only be used on a device owned or controlled by you running the OS for which the Other Application concerned was designed.

We may, from time to time, restrict access to certain features, parts or content of the Website, or the entire Website.

Operation of the FTSE Media

We cannot guarantee the continuous, uninterrupted or error-free operability of the FTSE Media. There may be times when all of, or certain features, parts or content of, the FTSE Media, becomes unavailable (whether on a scheduled or unscheduled basis) or are modified, suspended or withdrawn by us, in our sole discretion, without notice to you. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any unavailability, modification, suspension or withdrawal of any FTSE Media, or any features, parts or content of any FTSE Media.

You may only use the FTSE Media for your own non-commercial personal use and only in accordance with these terms.

Subject to the following sections, you may retrieve and display content from the FTSE Media on a computer or mobile device, print pages from our website and store the FTSE Media in electronic form.

Additional terms may also apply to certain features, parts or content of the FTSE Media and, where they apply, are set out in these terms or will be displayed before you access the relevant features, parts or content.

What you are not allowed to do

Except to the extent expressly set out in these terms, you are not allowed to:

  • create (whether for yourself or someone else) any financial product or service which seeks to match the performance of, or the capital or income value of which is related to, any FTSE Media (including any FTSE Index);
  • republish, redistribute or re-transmit any FTSE Media;
  • copy or store the FTSE Media other than for your own personal non-commercial use and as may occur incidentally in the normal course of use of your browser or mobile device;
  • store the FTSE Media (including pages of our website) on a server or other storage device connected to a network or create a database by systematically downloading and storing any data from the FTSE Media;
  • remove or change any content of the FTSE Media or attempt to circumvent security or interfere with the proper working of the FTSE Media or any servers on which it is hosted;
  • create links to our website from any other website, without our prior written consent, although you may link from a website that is operated by you provided the link is not misleading or deceptive and fairly indicates its destination, you do not imply that we endorse you, your website, or any products or services you offer, you link to (and do not frame or replicate) the home page of our website, and the linked website does not contain any content that is unlawful, threatening, abusive, libellous, pornographic, obscene, vulgar, indecent, offensive or which infringes on the intellectual property rights or other rights of any third party; or
  • otherwise do anything that it is not expressly permitted by these terms.

You must only use the FTSE Media and anything available via the FTSE Media for lawful purposes (complying with all applicable laws and regulations), in a responsible manner, and not in a way that might damage our name or reputation or that of any of our affiliates.

All rights granted to you under these terms will terminate immediately in the event that you are in breach of any of them.

in reliance on, or on the basis of, any FTSE Media nor for any such liability arising from any other use of, or reliance on, the FTSE Media.

These terms shall be governed by English law, and you agree that any dispute between us regarding them or the FTSE Media will only be dealt with by the English courts, provided that, if you are a consumer and not a business user and live in a part of the United Kingdom other than England, the applicable law of that part of the United Kingdom will govern and any dispute will only be dealt with by the courts there.
