We are a commercial company that wants to offer easy access to EU geographic boundaries spatial data through an API service. The API service would be freely accessible for limited use. No charges are requested for the data itself. Very intensive users will be charged the cost for transfering the data, not for the data itself.
The data we are providing access through via the API is stored on our databases in the cloud. We have not created the data, it is downloaded from the EUROSTAT website. In addition to the general copyright and licence policy applicable to the whole Eurostat website, the following specific provisions apply to the datasets we have downloaded (source: https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/gisco/geodata/reference-data/administrative-units-statistical-units)
The download and usage of these data is subject to the acceptance of the following clauses:
- The Commission agrees to grant the non-exclusive and not transferable right to use and process the Eurostat/GISCO geographical data downloaded from this page (the "data").
- The permission to use the data is granted on condition that: (i) the data will not be used for commercial purposes; (ii) the source will be acknowledged. A copyright notice, as specified below, will have to be visible on any printed or electronic publication using the data downloaded from this page.
When data downloaded from this page is used in any printed or electronic publication, in addition to any other provisions applicable to the whole Eurostat website, data source will have to be acknowledged in the legend of the map and in the introductory page of the publication with the following copyright notice:
EN: © EuroGeographics for the administrative boundaries
FR: © EuroGeographics pour les limites administratives
DE: © EuroGeographics bezüglich der Verwaltungsgrenzen
For publications in languages other than English, French or German, the translation of the copyright notice in the language of the publication shall be used.
I am assuming that this license does not prohibit the usage of the data as planned in our use case, since we have no plans of selling the data itself.
Is this assumption correct in your opinion?
Thank you for help.
